It is still a joke. What firmware or software have you personally ever bothered to examine, change, or share? The whole idea is preposterous.

you can find that many people have been modifying their TiVos, and at
you can find people who have read, changed, and shared GPLed software
on a router, just as the FSF envisions.

Notice that it only takes a handful of people to make the improvements,
which can then be shared by many others who don't have the skills to do
it themselves. That's what free software aims to accomplish, and that
you find it preposterous says more about you than about the FSF.
