Yes, I fully understand what you're saying Mike.
You mentioned the magic word 'though - PR - sadly the way of the world
However, the machine itself is nice, it's big, it looks the part, the software looks very good (it has issues of course) it's multi platform - that is a HUGE issue with the 'maker' crew - many of them are Mac or Linux - how many controllers support mac or linux - diddly squat - you just can't keep disregarding such a large section of the community without it eventually biting you back
I'm not going to go the political route on a laser forum, but suffice to say, you only need to take a look at the near east to see the effects of NOT pampering to the perceived 'minority'. /rant
I'd watch your back Mike, you'll find a lasersaur logo burned into you're Levis
I have a foot in both camps (probably the sharp part of the fence
) so would like to see some form of merger for 'the greater good'. I'm also interested in the LAOS controller project and have a beta board - maybe one of them will head out in front . It would be really good if all the knowledge was chanelled into one direction - now that IS a political comment
