Thank you for your reply,
I really hope you guys succeed because I believe in what you are doing and trying to accomplish, but right now with the info that there’s out there, it’s simply not for me, sorry =|… No doubt I will be backing this campaign with something, just don’t know what, maybe one of the expansion boards will do something so amazing I will just change my mind =). Regarding the fist usecase, I know the mox isn’t a competitor to the rpi, but in this case, I think the rpi might be a competitor to the mox, because you can build a nas whith a rpi, maybe not as good or reliable as the mox, but for a lot less money and it’s still open and hackable. The second usecase I don’t understand what you are talking about, my bad… sorry for that, but I’m sure you are right. You guys really had a winner with the omnia, it’s an amazing beast, if this was a smaller version of the omnia to extend the range and capabilities of the omnia, or maybe even for people who think the omnia is too much, than I think you would have a winner too. I understand the concept is modularity but I think, at least right now, maybe you stripped too much for the sake of modularity and the price is a little high. If you had a smaller omnia, without SFP, with internal antennas, plastic case, slower cpu, less ram, less flash, less mPCIe, less USB, 3 or 4 ethernet switches instead of 5, just smaller “companions” to the omnia not as barebones as this, I think I would be on board with that, if the price was right. The omnia right now sells for about 300€, a 100€ or 150€ smaller brother of the omnia would be awesome, maybe even different versions of it. I think the omnia with pin headers with GPIO, I²C, SPI, mPCIe, 2 USB 3.0 is already very hackable and extensible. Before finding and buying the omnia I was just looking for a small and cheap router I could flash with openwrt, so are a lot of people, and I was thrilled to find a project like yours and just had to back it up, it was just too good! Again, best of luck to your campaign, I really hope you guys can make it, I will back it with a smaller perk and I’m sure I’ll back some other projects from you in the future.
