Scoble asks Gates: can we create an interesting music player?

Brian Scoble has written an open letter to Bill Gates about “Open Sourcing” the product development for an iPod competitor. He outlines an interesting plan that would compete with the grass roots Apple culture head on. Will MSFT listen? We'll see. I think it would be difficult for Microsoft 1) to get into the hardware mp3 business as it would upset some of their OEM's and 2) generate the same buzz that Apple has due to their size/reputation/etc. The post seems to have drawn a lot of heat for some reason, though.
