Re: A commendable effort
"It seems that at least five people think that the Fairphone people can't go bust, but decline to state why Fairphone should be immune to the laws of economics."
Other manufacturers are also not immune from the laws of economics. From that point of view it seems a tad unreasonable to aim this as a specific criticism. The previous point was a fair one; it makes no difference how long a manufacturer remains in business if they're not prepared to support their products with spares.
