Re: Goodbye FTDI
They are only licensed for use with genuine FTDI parts. If you don't like that get your own drivers
This will backfire nastily on FTDI, since they are deliberately screwing their customers, the purchasers of the chips - who buy the cheapest parts they can, obviously, often via brokers. i.e. they are making their problem into a much bigger and expensive problem for their customers.
Next stop is "FTDI chips are unreliable - some batches work and some don't - for whatever reason. So we now have an extra quality assurance problem in our manufacturing. Sod that, let's use a part we can rely upon".
