While there's people like that also on this list this is a good
point and something to keep in mind if and when we want to produce

The problem with most if not all products that would be used for/with
LinuxBIOS is that they either have a very small market or must reach
a very low target price, which means there is little to no capital to
be gained from the process. Indeed I think the problem with the
product ideas we've had so far is that of financing the production
rather than the technical knowledge needed. It's just really
expensive to make stuff. :(

(And then there's sales and distribution if it's a consumer product
rather than developer product.)
