Its just another M3 box (4GB NAND), running XBMC-Linux (oh they forgot to acknowledge Pivos for that )

Do we still thank Edison for the lightbulb
Amlogic: Thanks to Pivos -> who thanks XBMC -> who thanks Frodo -> who thanks ....
Don't get me wrong, but by releasing the source code (opensource) THAT IS the acknowledgement. That being said, Pivos will benefit from it as it basically means another source of development, bug hunts etc. and of course I really appreciate Pivos stepping onto the ice in relation with opensource in commercial projects.
That is the power of opensource.
As I am involved in that particular project I really do feel this could be the prove that opensource in commercial aspects DOES work, by beneficial co-existance. (but the future will tell ....)

And that the source project benefits from the existance of the commercial entity. So far I see Pivos following that model in spades. I have yet to see any of the other xbmc "box" manufacturers comming close to following that model. The little black box might be different but only time will tell. So far all I have seen from the other clone boxes is the companies adopting the leach model where they take from others work and contribute nothing to improve the core project that they freely profit from.
