Slotting in a locked-identifier magic USB chip solution with a potential $2000 USD barrier of entry to anybody just for a USB VID.
Just a thought: any people here who'd consider chipping (pun intended) in to buy a vendor id for this community? If, for example, one hundred people put in $20, we could maybe (would need to check the regulations) buy a vendor ID and divide the pIDs amongst the participants - perhaps allocating spares to community endorsed/interesting projects?
Great minds think alike.
But yes, we'd probably need to see how the IDE responds to different vIDs/pIDs to know whether this would work the way we'd like.
Actually... is the IDE open-source? I've never looked. That being true it shouldn't be too hard to get it to work with different USB vendor IDs.
If people do decide to go for a community VID I'll happily chuck some cash in but otherwise I don't really care.
