It runs Linux inside!

I cannot stop enjoying my Wireless Music Bridge. Being a software engineer I got curious about what's inside my little gadget. I mean what software, or operating system it runs.

Then I visited LinkSys website and found that it runs Linux on MIPS microprocessor. According to GPL license, any manufacturer of electronic devices, if one uses Linux operating system, should provide a full source code of OS that runs on the device. And Linksys does it!
