Re: I want only one sticker

One part of the problem is that even with source, it can't necessarily be easily updated, or even updated at all. Just because you can coerce your hardware to accept an update, doesn't mean the other owners could. I think you'd at least need a sticker for how to update - automatic, prompted, does it need you to run a windows executable, or to insert a usb key, does it need to have open internet connectivity. Step two would then inevitably be can you roll back an automatic update, when the manufacturer ships you an update that breaks functionality you use.
