I'm already doing that in order to provide my salesperson and another very senior engineer/consultant i'm in cahoots with - with ammunition to bring to bear when it comes time to sell the thing.

I need to finish the code though, because there's still a chance that the performance of this thing won't be feasible on an ESP32. The only way to find out is to do it.

If it doesn't work, I may try to find a cheapo last gen ARM Cortex-R or even an A to run it on.

But right now I've researched the market, I've documented what I've found, I've documented what my code potentially does, how it (and the associated hardware) would improve things for the potential purchaser, and where it adds (i think) the most value.

All of that is helping me make better decisions and also helping my little support team make better decisions.

But I don't actually want to document how I did it publicly because I'm going a different direction - I'm releasing all the component pieces needed to do most of the heavy lifting. The final app glues all those together *and* orchestrates it in such a way that it will perform okay (it will never perform *well* on an ESP32). The latter part is where a lot of the work is, so I'm confident that based on timing and complexity I'm safe doing things this way, as long as I DO NOT publicly document how my epub application itself works, technically.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
