How long does it take to charge the first time?
Edit: It may take up to 24 hours. This time will greatly decrease with any of the docks. If you disconnect power early it can lead to ill battery life in the future.

How do I clean the screen?

http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?t=4122

Also, a lens or eyeglass cleaning cloth. Also useful is a non conducting liquid and a chamois cloth.

Can I install my own applications, after all, this is linux?
Just because something is linux, doesent mean it's open to software install. Archos has chosen to lock down their device, disallowing programs.

Where is the mic on the 605?
There is no integrated mic, you will need to purchase the FM remote.

Or, if you want the option of high quality recording follow this thread
