I recently had a thought. What if you could use your framework expansion cards on other laptops? Imagine you have a framework laptop and a friend of you has not, but you could provide them with the expansion cards when they need IO they don’t have a card for. And not just as a box like USB-C dongle.
I know, this is likely not coming in the near future, but could you imagine Dell, HP, Asus or so adopting the system as it is open? This would also make it possible to use older modules for longer, as USB gets faster, and worse names, the cards will likely also need to adopt, but it would be nice to be able to use them on an old laptop further after upgrading the framework.
Also, this would make some laptops buyable again, as they seem to adopt USB-C as the only connector, partly even ditching the headphone jack (Looking at you Dell), which now that there is a headphonejack expansion card, could easily be fixed.
