Comparison of all available V3 firmwares
I think what is missing in the wiki is a comparison of all available firmwares. I'm thinking of comparing features, stability, speed, flexibility, usability and output result quality. (Certainly not in that order.)
My aim is to encurage others in experimenting with different firmwares, thus improving the user experience.
