*I'll be interested in the responses.
*From what I've read here and on the JCI site, aren't they the same, only different.
*The same because they are both JACE at heart.
*Different because the FX40 has the N2 driver plus some added JCI specific stuff.
*There is so much cool stuff to learn in this jungle called controls.
I've used Tridium since 2001, and have liked it every step of the way. I've never touched an FX40 though, so I don't really have any thoughts on it.
The picture below is my opinion on your statement above though:

The kabiliion graphics it comes with loaded on Your Jace, all the drivers you don't need N2, bachnet, Lon, etc. All there Nav files, etc, etc, etc.
A ton of that BS, if you delete, no more worky !!!!
The Jace from wherever else you put on what you need conserving resources in the process.
Why have it, if it slows things down and limits your capacity ???
AND,,,, did I mention they are still in the 3.0 series ???? behind the times, period......
Just why go there???
It's very true that there is alot of extras that aren't in a regular JACE. But it's not technically just a JACE, it's an appliance, which by definition, has alot of extra stuff for cookie-cutter application.
I just delete the system graphics, link folder,.... since all I really needed was the N2 capability.
I heard yesterday from a distributor that the soon coming release will be 3.2.
