As I already said here, I think, there are some rumours about one guy which
hacked a microwaveII to put the OS onto a Virus. I don't think it is true,
but why not ?
And, there are some very famous hack of synth, like the EPS, the ESQ from
ensoniq ( see the interview of Autechre in the one sound of sound, where
they speak about the modifies OS of their EPS sampler ). I remember to have
seen some pages about hacking a keyboards to program some weird effects...
I would not be surprised to see some mini linux kernel put into modern
keyboards... ( if somebody have some infos about that, it would be nice to
email me, privately, about his infos ).
