Re: Goodbye FTDI

The point is end users don't get the choice of whether counterfeit FTDI parts were used or not. The first they hear of it is when the device they bought in good faith is damaged by these malicious drivers.

The lazy ones are FTDI because instead of acting to clean up supply chains and chase counterfeiters they punish innocent consumers caught in the crossfire who have no way to stop this from happening other than to avoid FTDI devices altogether.

How much more of this do you think people will put up with before another vendor steps in and takes FTDI's entire market away from them? It is sheer lunacy.
