On the contrary, Marc Andreessen seems to think now is a great time to invest in the future. Wonder if he’s actually willing to make those investments or if he’s all talk :P. Mill is one of those companies that you don’t see very often: redesigning platforms instead of incrementally layering and remixing. I hope things work out well for you guys; you deserve success.
Is the work that’s left just a software challenge? Is the funding just for hiring some devs and hitting “print” at the fabs at this point? I feel there should be some markets that just care about raw “on the metal” compute, not established OS support, and maybe an LLVM backend is all they need? My naive guess anyway… I presume you have initial markets in mind.
