My motivation in creating this tear-down was to better publicize what I consider Bomgar's bad policy for their hardware. They make an outstanding product, with what I regard as one single huge limitation. Bomgar has done everything possible to prevent re-sale and re-use of their hardware. Essentially, being in physical possession of the box does not entitle you to use it.
This turns the "If you can't open it, you don't own it" manifesto on its head. What is really troubling about this is that Bomgar used open source software extensively in the creation of their product.
Everyone needs to make a profit, or they can not stay in business, its just not clear to me that Bomgar is giving back as much as it gets.
On another front, I see it as a waste creator. Essentially this appliance is designed and intended to never be re-used. A company which goes out of business is like a tree falling. It decomposes, and ends up having much of its essence recycled into new growth. The assets get sold and used again-- but not Bomgar appliances. They are essentially junk which is only worth their weight/cost as scrap.
