    No responsibility under warranty, I agree. But that's entirely
    irrelevant to the discussion at hand, as far as I can tell.

    Your tampering does _not_ mean that they no longer have to comply with
    the licence terms of the software they've shipped on the device. If it's
    Windows, they still need to pay Microsoft for it. And if it's Linux they
    still need to release all the relevant source code.
