BeatThang hardware running embedded Linux

I like sampling drumboxes so I follow the story of the upcomming hardware drumbox Beat Thang. Today I learned that it runs an embedded Linux inside which is pretty cool, hopefully it could be hacked and extended.

Manufacturer Beat Kangz had some trouble violating the GPL recently by distributing LADSPA Plugins with their software plugin without giving credit and sharing that source but hopefully its sorted out. Companies seems to have difficulties to understand open source licenses and how to do a proper business with it, the Kangz are not the first.
