Three years of reasonably intensive effort by Walter and myself, a year pretty much full time for Marcus and then there are all the other contributions and the ongoing maintenance.

And the project is still continuing and evolving with the 31S, complex mode and bit's many improvements.

And, not to put too fine a point on it, when the hardware platform is gone it will be gone. Everyone has proven that they own code, design, layout, organization, even writing; but, at the end of the day its all for naught if there is no hardware platform to install it over. We need to own the open hardware too; own it, control it, market it, share it, preserve it, be proud of it...

... thanks again Pauli, for all you do, and today especially for pointing me at the Intel Edison! That is one fabulous board... a serious contender for the open hardware we're talking about.


Kind regards,
