Well, you are talking about the company. I think of us, users. I am not 
the only one who bought it. I think that the integration it provides 
it's great, but the OS has some bugs that need attention... the company 
is releasing new versions every 1.5 years...

I am thinking in the users. There are a lot, and they're interested. 
Technology, for me, is here to help humanity. That's why I'm interested. 
I know we could develop our own software and buy the hardware 
separately. But, then again, this is not the case.

It's for the users... that's all I can say.
