| Last up, one pat on the back to Thecus. All of their devices run Linux,
| and Thecus is being a very good corporate citizens about their use of
| GPL'd code. Normally, you only hear about people violating the GPL or
| have to search their site for a buried link to the source.
| With Thecus, the opposite is true. They put the code on their main
| page, usually right next to the firmware updates themselves. I actually
| saw the code before I realized what it was, quite an unusual situation.
| It was a case of me scratching my head wondering what the .GPL extension
| was before it dawned on me. Again well done.
