Re: Keep up the pressure on Archos

and another thing on the subject of Archos allowing 3rd party
firmware development is this: If it were not for Rockbox I wouldn't have
been able to swap over the function of the F2 and F3 buttons. I could'nt
have sent it back as it's now past it's warrenty date.
Basically Archos are rubbish aren't they? They make shoddy hardware as well as
shoddy software!

No, i can't be too horrible to them - I do love my Archos...

I have to admit the only reason I bought an Archos was because of


Rockbox. I had read about the awfull firmware and it would allow me to


tinker too. I would definatly consider getting an AV model if it was


'tinkerable'

RE: Keep up the pressure on ArchosNo lawyers out there willing to help out


Rockbox? They put in their



free time for your mp3 player, how about a little pro-bono advice?




<#include rant.h>




1)Rockbox is the only thing that makes Archos a contender on the mp3



market.



2)I will not buy another Archos product and I will discourage everyone I



can from buying ANY Archos product if they continue to insult user code



development. Even their threats to you make me want to go back to a



Creative device, especially since they took the PlayCenter out of the



file transfer loop, hmmm...




"computer law is one of the most unfair, perverse, corporate



friendly/individual unfriendly thing ever dreamt up"




How else do you think Microsoft is allowed to undermine the cultural and



technological development by forcing the world to use its POS software?



They aren't around because their products are reliable and pleasant to



work with.
