brilliant! and who shall buy the first batch os 1000 crippled boards when a fully functional replacement for almost same price is expected?
or are you suggesting aou would buy both boards in order to support the development? and if so why not just trash the current design, and instead of still pumping money in the production, invest the money in redesign and sell for the double price. that would be still more reasonable that stubbornly sticking to apparently failed idea for whatever reason.
