Dear Sir/Madam,

I am MSc Student at TUHH and doing my research on open source hardware. As a case study example i picked Gumstix, as i found it very interesting and innovative.
Coming to the point i am a bit confused about the fact that Gumstix is doing alot for communities as an open source hardware and software provider so,

What does the company gets in return??
And how it is capturing its values??
what is closed or NOT open for community from Gumstix??
what is open by the company for the community?

 Kindly response to my Questions as these answers will be very very supportive in my research.

Thanking you.
Best Regards,
