Well, I obviously can't speak for anyone but myself, but if I had wanted an  
open source system I'd have bought a Flex.  I'd humbly suggest that  anyone 
who wants open source simply go and do that.

Well one  scenario I can thing of is someone installs after market software, 
it  doesn't work right and many features left out, radio is sold as is to new 
owner, new owner says this is a piece of @^$$%# and send it off to TenTec  
with a nasty letter saying effectively , FIX THIS PIECE OF #^%@ AS YOU  MADE 
IT ! Probably not quite a WIN-WIN for poor old TenTec ?
