  • A company cannot be 100% open source nor a product designed for profit purposes. As Pete reminded us, companies need to make money and it is totally fair if business' owners decide not to share their IP. When dealing with hardware development, maybe custom software could be a way to generate value out of an open source design(if applicable) and viceversa. Security is an important aspect to consider when working with open source technology. I can see companies sharing their hardware and software designs/developments while keeping security layers undisclosed to assure comercial value to their potential investors. One thing is certain, more people should be talking about this!

No public wish lists :(
