Multimedia, AV We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered (by snooping on its firmware files) that the Pontis MX2020 multimedia device that Geeks.com sent us for a review actually uses Linux (embedded distribution uCLinux, kernel 2.4.19). If it's video, audio, pictures, recording or even basic PDA functionality via its touch screen, the Pontis MX2020 can do it all. And for very cheap too.

qualify that with, "at this writing", or, "today", and it might be valid.

Well, I asked for the source code and Pontis does not have it. They just used whatever iUbi gave them as binaries. And the iUbi/Pontis devices are out for more than a year. If iUbi wanted to post their changes/source-code they would have done so, don't you think?
