From day one, and as posted on every document page of MS (and even on the bottom of this forum) is the intent that MegaSquirt be used in educational and research purposes only. This includes MSIII.
Doesn't quite fit with what they were actually saying back in 2001 :

Commercially biased right from the start I tell you! Not us!

I was pointed to Linux vs. Minix as drawing parallels with MS vs. FreeEMS earlier today :

LOL, man I LOVE that :-)

I once had a stand up argument with a lecturer about mathematical modeling in front of the whole class of 150. She was wrong. Still is, always was :-)

Justice served now with Linux as clear number 1. I hope the lecturer apologised (or Linus did I guess).

Was that a post from msefi/ms3efi/msextra/etc ? If so, is it still there? I'm guessing not. If not anyone got a cached copy or some context? It sounds interesting.

That's Roger Enns. I doubt they'd delete his comments :-) You never know though I guess...

I know who he is and that's what makes the comment even more interesting in my mind. What's likely to happen is that the thread will simply disappear.
