The number of early adopters is irrelevant in this context.
People are attracted to tools that can make their life easier
doesn't meter if it is for learning or employ a particular technology.
If a customer finds most of what he/she needs in Stylus then is willing to
collaborate with us and this forum is a live proof. Our team has processed
any message from the community in the last 5 years most of the times in few hours.
Just browsing the forum should give indications to evaluators but,
if the user gives up after the first try and never comes back to us,
there isn't much we can do about.
We believe that the Stylus Studio community is around 30000 active developers
2/3 of them are professionals.
>How much is critical mass?
Critical mass doesn't necessarily translates to numbers, hundred single
users or one significant deal can became equivalently important.
