I'm wondering if there is a danger of being too successful. One the "giants" buys Purism out and they conveniently disappear...

They're a long way off 'too successful' imo.

What we're seeing at the moment is a few open source projects trying to capitalise on the hype of the project, and thats about it.

Anything is possible, but in that case, a lot of manufacturers would be in trouble and Purism would be the last of them, as iMx6 are used in everything from cars to medical devices.

As the iMx6 is not a consumer chip where availability is about a year, but one for industrial use, there is the benefit of longevity:

Participating products are available for a minimum of 10 years from product launch (15 years from product launch for many products developed for the automotive, telecom and medical segments), and are supported by standard end-of-life notification policies.
