@Simon yeah I get that and fair enough, I just wish that Overbridge was not such a pivotal stumbling block for future OS dev of the hardware, like for example when a desktop os update breaks OB compatibilty as it seems to have in the past, I imagine extra man hours and resources are required to fix it, putting other things on the back burner, so to speak. Maybe I’m talking a bit out of turn, and making some unfounded assumptions here, but it does seem from a long term users point of view that hardware updates were more frequent in the pre OB days and when Elektron was a smaller company.
I appreciate that my views on OB may not be shared by a large percentage of Elektron users, but for hardware only guys Elektron were always the go to machines, and of course the machines are still useable without OB, no question, but a basic 2 way back up app is still a requirement so I hope that is on the cards soon.
I do find it really strange how people who are so reliant on OB seemed to have an aversion to paying for it, personally I think a paid software model would benefit everyone, more OB dedicated staff could be hired reducing dev time, and people who don’t need it don’t buy it, it would also give Elektron a clearer picture of who actually values it and who just use it because it is free. I’ll state right now that I have no problem paying for a proper standalone backup app for AR and DT, whether it comes from Elektron or a third party dev, because it has value to me, just as the machines themselves do and we pay for those.
I hope that you can see my point, and that my perspective whilst not that of a “Yes” man comes from a genuine enthusiasm for Elektron gear.
