I've really enjoyed joining in the whole Pi story since the anticipation and waiting in 2011, up to today's evolved Pis, it's been amazing. Getting free Zeros on the magazine cover, going to 4 cores etc. I'm realistic, I know this is the natural lifecycle that businesses go through but I'm sad that it might be lost to corporatism. There is no precedent for anything like this ending well for us end users. That natural lifecycle usually ends in burnout.
IF this happens, I keep my fingers crossed for a breakaway spin-off company to keep the true spirit of Pi alive.
