If I were to get this I would gladly act as a beta tester. I could also set it up on my network and give developers shell access, if that's what's needed.
However, my primary concern if it's actually open, or if it's filled with super secret patented stuff or otherwise tries to lock me down. I'd need to know that before I even considered it.
