I do not think there is a big market for any calculator outside of education and testing.

The spreadsheet takes care of 90%+ of my computing needs and it is easier to define a model in a spreadsheet than to write a program for the same model. I'd speculate that most use a spreadsheet over a calculator.

My argument for the 34S and open source approach is that it's something different to try to identify other markets, even if its just a hobbyist market. E.g. look at the $25 Raspberry Pi. The ecosystem for that is massive. Put that in a case with 50 or so blank buttons, provide source to a model to 3D print custom keycaps and face plate labels, and you have yourself an open platform for scientific fun. Could be a calculator, could be a data collector, a keystroke robotic programmer, etc... IOW, there are *other* educational markets to go after.

Anyway, that type of thinking requires vision.
