The Particle community looks pretty solid and seems to be growing nicely.
My question to the community is however, if I were to invest in building a set of complex home automation systems using Particle hardware, I am pretty much reliant on the Particle platform/cloud, which is fine. Until however “someday” a bigger fish competitor comes along and buys Particle, so they can eventually shut it down in favour of their product.
I am not at all wishing for this to happen, but it happens, it’s how business and the world works.
If this were to happen and the Particle cloud was taken down, would that mean that all my Particle devices comprising the systems I have built are now basically bricks?
