mhhh - harsh words, but somewhat right. at least the user community should get informed, whats going on there (if there is no
reaction from that guys)!

the GPL is the GPL - and such perky violation should _NOT_ be accepted!
they should be warned about the negative publicity they could get. there are LOTS of GPL "fundamentalists" out there who make very
loud "noise" in such case :D

from the website:
>Our engineers have worked hard so that this firmware will give you all that
>you ever wanted and even more.
*lol*
perhaps they should mention, that the engineers are the noble people behind rockbox, too.
I wonder when they ripp off the rockbox win32 sdk and claim it to be the "ssi america openneo sdk"
:D

roland
