Default Free Zune for a Linux Solution


"So here's the deal: If you want to either install Linux on a Zune or write a utility to make a Zune Linux-compatible, email [email protected] and tell us why we should give this free Zune to you. The person we deem most likely to put it to good use, based on previous development track record and all-around desire, will get this Zune to have, hold, use as a development platform, and otherwise do with as he or she wishes. All we ask in return is a reasonable description of the hacking effort -- successful or not -- within a reasonable time. Call it 90 days after you receive it. And to keep the "Who gets it?" question from going on forever, we'll close the entry period on December 22 and announce our decision on December 26, the day after Christmas, then mail it out on or about January 2nd, 2007, after the Christmas shipping (and return) rush has died down."

I can't imagine that our readership includes all that many Linux developers, but I figured I'd post on this just in case any of you are looking for a free Zune and have some killer developer chops.
