GNU, GPL, Open Source More often than not, the question arises on OSNews why certain projects or pieces of abandonware aren't released as open source software. Supposedly, this would speed up development, facilitate the growth of a community, all that jazz associated with open source development. Here are four projects I'd like to see released under a MIT license.

the latter might prove to be rather problematic since only three were built

I believe you mean three different models which incidently doesn't fit much better because it tells you nothing about the volume of sales of the units, which appears to be the point you are trying to get across.

I don't have any hard figures but I'll stick my neck out and say I'm pretty sure they sold more than three units of the A1 ;)

So they actually sold -3 units?

I know this is getting silly ;) I never did figure how to admit defeat gracefully.
