I think I agree.
I think that the market for "personal embedded targets" will probably grow, and if NI plans to keep supporting these devices (PDAs, smartphones, or whatever else comes along), there really should be a board for these targets as well. I'm sure it can get more posts than some of the other boards here, say the Profibus board (75 posts). At the moment I'm only a random user myself, but that may yet change.

There seems to be some increase in LV PDA posts recently, and I assume there will be more if people get 8.0 PDA.
Have any conclusions been reached so far?

We have been toying with ideas on if and how to divide up the LabVIEW board for a long time. I think the ideal solution is on the horizon, but the technology hasn't caught up to it yet. What we would like to do eventually would be to give users the ability to tag the threads with various information - ie. product, version, application, question type, expertise - and then dynamically the community can categorize and filter all of the information without actually moving any of the threads or dividing up the community. I think it will be as flexible as anyone can tag any thread with anything at anytime. It solves the problem of having to categorize the content before you actually know where to put it as well as it doesn't divide the LabVIEW community up into so many smaller communities that people lose the audience to post their question to.
In the meantime, we are considering launching some custom filters to help those users who are interested in PDA, FPGA, RT, and DSC so they can find threads throughout the entire community. Do you think this would be helpful?
Happy New Year!
