Thank you very much for putting together this survey. I think it was a great way to solicit input, and I understand and appreciate the other comments about the survey questions slanting some of the answers. I think an altered approach to the survey might be needed next time, but I REALLY think this was a good idea.
QUESTION: What happens with this data now? Since much of this feedback is hardware related, is there a steering committee that would help collate and suggest a direction forward? Just from the processed data shown in the PDF, I don't feel there is enough information to responsibly put together a roadmap that serves the professional community, but more importantly continues to serve the everyday hobbyist. However, as an EE with a lot of interest in this area, I would like to contribute.
Thanks for pulling this together and I'm interested to hear how this data is intended to drive development direction.
