The 'OPlayWare' project is currently a 'personal' [1] build/test/plan/wish-list to develop, experiment & investigate a customised firmware image for the Asus O!Play.

A word of advice - before you rush to hack anything, spend a few minutes reading about it's system architecture. Having a general view of your system will help you later and is interesting enough by itself.

Embedded appliances [2] that surround you are generally perceived as "black boxes'' which you can only use the way manufacturer designed them, contrary to an “open” PC which you can extend, modify and hack the way you want it, especially if that PC runs Linux.
