I had some reason to make a priced license at the beginning indeed, but I have nothing to claim now. I'm not lacking of one cup of coffee or beer.
The hardware itself is well done with commercial productive design and quality. Actually I was imagining some similar device, but I couldn't do it better. The community is pretty cool too, and I know communities are often more important than the hardware with such projects. But I'd say the ecosystem is not complete without an official distribution approach, incentive mechanism for active developers, or even toolchains for each common operating system.
I enjoy some of the good games. But either as a coder or a gamer, I'm expecting something with better quality could be found here, something more than self satisfied toys.
