Great article, thank you. But the comments are rather scary and are
making me very sad. That's a lost battle, I'm afraid, it would be
easier to persuade a Christian to pray to Allah every morning.
Is there a way to effectively prevent Tivoization without the help of
the Linux developers? What other software does a Tivo box use? If
they use other components of GNU/Linux that will be relicensed under
GPLv3, this might be possible, I guess.
AFAIK, BusyBox is also under GPLv2 only.
