Our Response To PC Engines Open-Source Firmware Sponsorship Discontinuation

  • Dear PC Engines hardware owners,

    We regret to announce that PC Engines, a provider of small and low-power servers for network security, wireless networking, and embedded applications, has discontinued its sponsorship for open-source firmware. Although this is a significant change for the open-source firmware community, our commitment to supporting the hardware remains strong. At Dasharo, we aim to continue the legacy of PC Engines by distributing open-source firmware and putting the community's needs first. Our focus will be on releases and feature sets driven by community support. We are considering a subscription model to ensure stable and reliable firmware updates. Your input is important to us, and we would appreciate your feedback through our survey at https://forms.gle/MHrT2f1du1Afvwvj9. Please help us understand how we can better serve the open-source firmware community and ensure its success in the future.
