All very important points!
About the title,
Isn't "faster time to market" a bit too catchy? Each new technology
brings "faster time to market" since years, does it still have any
sense? Also the points do not really cover a potential time benefit.
There is certainly a win in sharing R&D and maintenance efforts for
common blocks, on the other hand having a public and collaborative
process has a cost too. Also common blocks are just a part of a product
creation, a significant amount of time is spent on formalising needs,
putting pieces together and later polishing. From another angle, as a
manufacturer, if I buy a Windows mobile license (for example), how GNOME
Mobile is faster?
It is unclear to me that the differentiation is on the time to market.
I would emphasis more on the collaboration on common building blocks
(which is what your bullet points are about), the shared maintenance
burden, and/or the fun to collaborate with the GNOME people, a lively
But after all, maybe that's what the OSiM audience wants to hear.
