- ERIKA & RT-DRUID
As you can see from this web site, ERIKA Enterprise and RT-Druid have been released as open source. This means you can download it, and use it in your application, provided you comply with the GPL+Linking exception license (which also means you do not have to release the code of your application).
Evidence, and many other volunteers, do provide free support on the online forum. We think this is a nice giveout to the community. As it is free, we do not give any guarantee over the service level we provide, but we are usually able to answer most questions in a few days. Training is also offered for free, or at little cost (just look at the various trainings announced on the news).
In addition, Evidence guarantees that ERIKA Enterprise works at least on the hardware boards and on the boards listed in the Hardware section of this website. The idea is these boards are useful for building an open-source community on a common hardware platform. For experience, having a common platform for a group of people helped a lot creating a critical mass of software that with time becomes useful in various application fields. We currently do have various universities using the tools, and the boards serve as a basic framework for people to evaluate and use the system.
The community also support companies willing to contribute to the project. As an example, take a look of what Peeble Bay has done on the esi-RISC platform!
It is great to work on this kind of open-source project, and we are happy helping people using it!
