One of my big reservations about putting my company's R&D efforts in to building off of GHI products was the uncertainty of NETMF, if you would be able to pull off the great Tiny CLR OS resurrection to keep .NET viable.
I'm risking a great deal - truthfully, putting my company's future on the line by putting so much time and energy in to building out on systems which rely on GHI.
It is reassuring to see such a deep level of commitment and fanaticism towards your end goal. Too many companies today are only about "moving forward, never backwards", and are all too quick to obsolete old things in favor of newer, shinier things. It's built in to the American genetic code, I think. Yesterday's technology is so much trash to be thrown away when the newest gadget comes out.
This being said, I need you guys to be on point with TinyCLR and get it right. I mean, get it REALLY right. Even if it takes a hair longer to complete, or whatever. Steps like this backward integration are very important. Because I'm literally staking my employee's futures on your employee's ability to deliver, "regression testing and compatibility" has a very real meaning as you move forward.
Keep up the good work, guys. And thanks. Like I said it is reassuring to see this level of commitment and attention to detail as you guys are doing.
