The question is more:Would your user rather have a "pretty good" product now, or invest into one year of development with no assurance that the "awesome" product can be done?[Lauren] yes i did understand, I completely agree, i was going for best case - worst case of course is the product is no better and is delivered late! I imagined everyone would have realised this was not guaranteed.
