Wizpy Linux-based, modifiable media player announced

Wizpy Linux Media Player

Software developer Turbolinux this morning revealed the open-source Wizpy media player. Using a distribution of the company's own Linux variant, the Wizpy is deliberately designed to be user-modifiable. Enthusiasts and programmers are encouraged to install their own software on the built-in 4GB of flash storage, even installing their own OS if they choose, according to Turbolinux. By default, the player ships with support for AAC, MP3, and OGG audio as well as DivX video and FM radio; the open nature of the player, however, also lets it connect directly to the Internet and read office documents. The company has committed to a February launch date, but says it has not determined a final price.
