I think the comparison of tablesaw to bandsaw is pretty valid. I do think it's an interesting point about speeds and feeds as, yeah, the Origin makes it seem like you just plug in paths and that's it. A stepper-driven machine you do need to use some CAM software and mess with gcode and dial in your speeds/feeds and while it's not hard, it is something you could mess up. Could also screw up your coordinate system entirely with the standard fixed machines. There have been times I've screwed that up. I'd like to have both tools eventually.
