You are right and that is my point. 

The other bits around about big companies with money
doing propietary stuff is off topic; since the original
thread mail was intended to talk about community
projects which learn the proper software/hardware

the market and which is that product.

Sorry for my english guys, maybe I did not explain
the idea very well.
