P.S., you could still make the flash image freely available or under a
mixed personal/commercial license. (The FOSS components would be free,
of course, but there would be a lot of custom scripts.)
But if you tell most people that the first thing they need to do is void
their warranty and spend even a few hours flashing the NAS -- something
that could leave the device unusable if it's done incorrectly? Forget
it. A $20 surcharge for a working system is a bargain.
