$27.50 + shipping is $30.00
$27.50 is $30.00 for that matter. $2.50 is negligible.
That's what I paid, Slick. Do more looking around, assembled clones sell in the low $20's.
You can easily find that in under 1 hour of "market research".
But what did you do?
I never asked about clones. I am sure that they are cheaper (as knockoffs always are) and I appreciate the heads up but you dont need to be rude about it.
There are several Open Source licenses with certain restrictions on each. You not knowing that speaks loudly.
Whereas I read the actual one that applies. No, you don't need special dispensation. Neither do the many and varied people marketing clones and compatibles today.
Hold on here....
I said I would check the licensing...
You commented that if I needed to check the license then I dont know what open source means...
I said that there are multiple levels of open source licensing...
You said that you checked the specific open source license that pertains to Arduino...
which is exactly what I said that I would do in the first place!
So just admit that you were wrong to suggest that the license did not need checking and that I did not understand open source in the first place. Your comment was unwarranted and incorrect... and rude.
You don't supply enough data for "constructive input" beyond, hey, you need to get your head out of your plans and look before you leap.
I am "looking before I Ieap". What do you think this thread is for in the first place?
I have gotten lots of valuable info from other forum members. I have gotten nothing but improper, rude comments from you. Please stay out of my threads if this is all you have to offer.
I often help people in my areas of expertise, Linux systems engineering and web application development, and I dont see the need to make the types of comments that you have made here. If thats your personality, fine but please respect my thread enough to stay out of it and let me converse with those willing to help.
