p.s.

Even with free labour, when has anyone been able to build anything of late for cheaper than they could buy it where electronics is concerned?

- Bare boards

- The test equipment needed to build it

- The tools

- The failures!

- Low volume part costs

- etc.

 

I am not saying never, but it sounds like one is trying to sell something that is not fully based in the real world.

You how now when there is a problem and the software guys point at the hardware guys and the hardware guys point at the software guys?

Now imagine a triangle .... good thing we have two hands as we will be pointing at two others :-)

It is not that I am against "open" anything, but perhaps one should ask why Linux does not rule the desktop, yet Android, and iOS, both new, rule handhelds.

High levels of complexity do require well planned, well executed, and yes, well managed executions.

High volume products require well planned, well executed and yes well managed support methodologies where software is concerned.

There is absolutely nothing preventing open-core initiatives ... so why has it not taken off? I think you need to answer that question first as if you can't, then it goes no where.

Let the discussion begin.
