I don't understand why you can't buy the hardware and put whatever OS you want on it.

Perhaps that day is coming in an official capacity one day soon:

I kind of like the idea of having the ability to install an OS that is fast, light, well supported and has lots of apps even on hardware that is no longer supported by the manufacturer. So for example, lets say Apple no longer wants to support a first gen iPod Touch or first gen iPad,....just install a different OS.

Such an OS could actually force companies to support hardware longer or risk loosing market share,....even on their own hardware,.....
