Shameless plug: We do exactly this. Our software is open source for anyone to use/test/fix. We do use SVN to maintain some control over the code that is commited, but overall it works quite well. We have just launched some projects on github; it's a new experiment and we're interested to see how it turns out.

This is why I like the concept of having a USB port. I don't have to do a single thing and all my existing solutions still work (external HD, etc...)

If you require an external HD then you are using your tablet wrong regardless of the make or model. Get yourself a laptop and save yourself some grief. As for the HID stuff, most tablets have bluetooth and you don't have to fight the cables when trying to prop up your tablet in the field.

The point was not about a specific device, it was the fact that all the devices that I have are compatible. I don't have to come up with a whole new system to continue to do what I want to do.
