1) our expertise
2) the amount of time it will take to get a competitor up to speed.
3) if they don't work with us, work with the OpenPOWER Foundation,
guarantees that they'll take 2-4 years longer.
4) the RISC-V Foundation's Membership list shows precisely that
competitors in exactly the same markets can work together without
destroying each other.
5) the work's incomplete: the 3D drivers aren't available.  this is a
*massive* task that involves collaboration, not competition.
6) the relationships with Pine64, Purism etc.

the list goes on and on.
