Not complex enough so that a network boot protocol can't fit on a BIOS

Ok, let's continue on this mailling list.
Register is needed to post, but I think it is worth to continue, to
clarify how works the freebox and some wrong assuptions.
The only wrong assumptions that I see here are yours.
I don't understand why you cannot accept that the Freebox is part of the
Free network infrastructure and that you are not using directly the OS
but only the service that they provide.
You have to understand that this is just like if the nodes to which your
mobile phone is connecting were running Linux. Just because your mobile
phone is your, you cannot ask for the code of what is running on the node.
