you've misled people by releasing information in reverse-order. we
had no idea that you have a client who is looking for 1000s of units.
that came *later* in a 2nd message. the 1st message - weeks ago -
gave everyone the impression that you were looking for a *personal*
system. everyone responded on that basis.

wrong on several counts. i _have_ warned you about making
judgements, jerry. now you're beginning to annoy me by continuing to
make judgements, when i'm trying to help you. and not being paid to
1) based on the facts (which have come through very slowly), the
EOMA68 design and the design strategy is the only one that fits the
requirements. despite your judgements to the contrary.
2) i have given you some leads to explore. the freescale and atmel
parts. these are nothing to do with the EOMA68 design.
3) when we did not have all the facts, i and several others
recommended that you explore the cubieboard and other hardware. when
you *eventually* presented all the facts [drip-feed], those boards
were eliminated. also, the EOMA68-A20 and Improv were not ready or
available at the time so i could not recommend them at the time.

that is a judgement on your part which is in direct conflict with the
facts. i'm still waiting for you to ask the questions rather than
continuing to make judgements.
are you interested in asking questions or is it more useful to you to

you may continue to view this in a way that is useful to you.

jerry, i have to be honest, here: the difficulty is in your ability
to understand the field, not in the requirements themselves.
