Easy - it's made by Cisco, and it can run OpenWrt.
And Cisco have never made a bad product? Who says the Bright Box won't run OpenWRT in time? It has superior hardware *AND* USB host mode, 300Mbps Wireless N. This is pure speculation, and I think a generous spoonful of Cisco apologist bias has been applied to the debate, which nullifies any weight you could have given to your argument.
I'm staying neutral on this, until a few months down the line, when the hardware has been properly reverse engineered. I don't see anyone here, me included, compiling firmware for the Bright Box, so we're not in a position to comment.
