Do You Have a Commercial Product Using NETMF?

I am always being asked for examples of what NETMF is used for.  I am also frequently surprised by what people are doing with it.  Since going Open Source, there is not an obvious way for me to find out what people are doing with the product and the result is that my list of applications is getting a little stale.  I’d like to know what you are up to.  Please email me at and tell me about your product – what it is, for what market, when you shipped, whatever you can share..  If you know someone else who has a commercial product, give them a shout too and have them let me know what they are doing.

    Colin, will you post any info about those commectial products or is it only for your information ?

  2. Colin Miller says:

    I was getting the info for me.  I didn't ask if the information was public but I can follow up with broad categories of products if people are interested.

  3. Gralin says:

    I would be very interested in hearing at least what category of products are created from net mf. People often ask me for real world examples of usage before taking net mf serious and i always say that there are many but people don't wan't to talk about it…

    I'll put something together.  I have asked a few people who responded if they are interested in sharing more.  I have a few blogs in the works so it may take a few weeks to get to this one.

    That is great news. I'm looking forward to this blog entry!

    Hi….I've been meaning to ask: do you have to pay a licensing fee to use NETMF in a commercial product?

  7. Colin Miller says:

    No – there is no license fee for using NETMF.  It is an open source product disctributed under the Apache 2.0 license so it can be used in commercial products under the terms of that license – which do not include

  8. M says:

    Thanks…that clears loads up for me. But there seems to be a contrary statement in the usage terms document  I downloaded…where's that coming from?

  9. Colin Miller says:

    Which document is that?  There were other license terms previously and I have been trying to track them all down and remove them.  I will clear this out if you can tell me where it is.

    Any chance you'll be releasing what you've found anytime soon?

    I have been getting out stories in the blogs and am working on some more.  The list ranges from medical devices to automation devices to energy mangement to irrigation ui for video editing devices.  Since I want to write a bit about the projects, I elected to include them in separate blog articles.
