Holy crap, there is a God! And close behind are Sparkfun and National Instruments. The two together?!?! I just got back from NI Week, and I blew a fuse when they mentioned this bundle in a presentation. Kudos to Sparkfun, the world is now complete. And by the way, I think you have quite a few fans in the Labview realm, even if it is a little bit of a secret society on the surface.
On the other hand, what is all this hating on Labview?! I was utterly surprised by the comments below. The college professor who introduced me to Labview 11 years ago was a genius, he was extraordinarily proficient at both C and LV, and he routinely chose Labview becuase he could get these massive (for the time) programs running in about 1/10th of the time it would take in C. He had six high speed cameras and many sensors writing to circular buffers on hard drives so that he could create automated 3D models for gait (walking) analysis and golf swings. Try doing that 10 years ago in C in your spare time. If you get that done in time, head down to the particle accelerators in Lawrence Livermore (running at least some Labview) and see what you can tweak.
Hey man, I love Labivew. And Sparkfun.
No public wish lists :(
