Great video. This exact topic has been on my mind all summer as I'm pretty much putting my eggs in the GHI basket. In fact I remember sending a private message not that long ago asking about product lifecycles and now I understand the response even more. It seems "old products never really die at GHI"
The last two tech talk videos were eye opening as well. You're taking your own products, and despite all of the work you've been putting in to the next evolution of NETMF, you have taken the time to test mbed and arduino on them. So now, while carrying the torch forward on .NET, you have also demonstrated how the future of designs are not necessarily contingent upon that framework, or the completion of the next evolution of that framework.
Thanks for the hard work guys. It makes me feel a lot more comfortable getting in to commercial products based off of these systems.
