Submission + - Can Hardware Have "distributions" like Lin ( 2

JoeBorn writes: "Neuros and DVRupgrade are partnering on a set of bounties to modify the Neuros OSD to synchronize with TiVo. Neuros has a blog posting suggesting that open source electronics will go the way of Linux with "multiple distributions" supported by multiple 3rd parties selling almost like affiliates. Do you believe open source hardware follow the distribution model of open source software? Have the barriers to entry dropped so low that virtually anyone can sell customized hardware out of their bedroom?"
