Now the discussion converted into bla bla.
Coming back to the subject:
The Panda 2 lived for 3 years then it suddenly died.
For me it is perfect.
I dont need a faster processor.
I dont need more RAM.
Again, as technology changes so do products.
This is the same with any business, from cell phones to laptops
This comparison is not valid.
I can easily replace a cell phone.
But I have developed a big project based on Panda2.
If I would have to change to Cerbuino I would have to change
1.) The hardware (different connector)
2.) The software. My RLP code will surely not run anymore. Neither all the tweaks with processor registers to get functionality that is unavailable in C#
Our project is also in use in other countries.
Do you think it is easy to recall these devices to change them entirely because replacement parts become unavailable ?
If you go to the “NEWS” forum board, you will find most of the information
that you were not able to find in your search.
The second link does not work and the first does not tell much new.
Put yourself into someone searching why Panda 2 is discontinued.
How will it come into your mind to search for “The future of Panda2” ?
It is past now !
I searched very long and did not find anything.
You should still list the Panda2 in the Catalog with the note
- that it is discontinued
- WHY it is discontinued
- That it still can be ordered for old developments.
4.) That it should be replaced with Cerbuino for new developments
This is a lack of your site.
It disappeared completely without ANY note.
And it should be found searching in Google for the words “Panda2 discontinued”
that upgrading to newer NETMF on USBizi leaves almost no space for user code.
I have no problem if you tell the old users who still use Panda2 in old projects that they should continue with the framework that they are currently using.
And new projects are encouraged to be developed on Cerbuino.
Did you know that recently Windows 7 has reached the end of it mainstream
This is very bad argument.
We all know that Microsoft cares a damn about customers wishes.
Microsoft is heap of shit.
Do you want to compare yourself with the worst ?
If you have plans to develop a Panda3, why dont you discontinue Panda 2 AFTER Panda3 is available ?
As I told: There are other companies like Sealevel who have hardware products since more than a decade. They updated them with newer chips but they stay compatible.
Why can they but GHI cannot ?
My question is still not answered !
Although USBizi may not be up to date anymore,
why not sell Panda2 and Cerbuino in parallel ?
Arduino is also an old development but still available.
Are the production costs of Panda2 higher than your income with that board ?
I dont believe that.
Your arguments could not convince me yet.
