Quoted from Zitt:
FSL rubs me the wrong way - they tried to copy Glowforge with the Muse line and failed. Last I heard the Muse line was less than stable.
Huh? Copied because they tried to bring a consumer-friendly laser to market? That's smart, I hope more people do that, exactly the competition we need. Why would you object to that?
I'm a little wary of the Muse and the extra stuff it has to break (camera) but I'd buy a Muse over a Glowforge any day of the week. Cloud only software for my personal hardware? They must be out of their minds, hard pass. My friend's wife was an early backer, she eventually did get her Glowforge, but it's still not doing everything they promised, like the pass through, and the filter module is MIA.
