Caution, May Contain Peanuts (or open source software)

At the
Internet co-op
where I work, we go through dozens of these Linksys boxes (WRT-54GL's) each month, ripping out the guts, stuffing in Linux, then using them as local WiFi radios and mesh network nodes.

Suddenly, the latest batch of boxes came with this warning notice on them, as if somebody might be allergic to open-source software. Kind of funny, especially considering that the reason the box is actually useful to us is because it can run open-source software.
