Thanks. I don't think you are the "bringer of bad news." It's nice to get some honest answers. I am recently retired and Ok with just contributing but a friend is considering possibly building a business around small project boards.
I do think unfortunately for you your Espruino works carries an unusually high "large Open Source software element" compared to many shield/hat type projects that could potentially sell a reasonable number of boards with much less software overhead and maintenance.
But, kudos to you for your vision of Espruino and delivering on it. For decades I have thought that it would be awesome to have a microprocessor that could run interpretive scripts on the fly rather than fixed compiled C code or overly complicated and insecure OS based hardware. I hope it remains profitable for you to continue. Thanks again.
