Since the Mk3 is already past its max stable CPU load, thus them having to disable LA.
I'm using the MK2 with Linear Advance for three months now. It works, even the old board can handle it.
The only thing that isn't working reliably with Linear Advance is the serial buffer + streaming commands from Octoprint, which needs a rewrite of a bit of software on the board to make OctoPrint happy again.
But yes, the 8 bit board can't handle anymore than LA and the current ludicrous speed of 200mm/sec infill, something beefier needs to come if there will be any more groundbreaking print related features.
The Duet WiFi is pretty overkill, but all i see this board do except print (and not as well as well as my finely tuned MK2) is drive a big display, some internal webserver, and plugins.
A Raspbnerry Pi can do all of those, too.
Remember, the hardware will only as good as the software that runs on it (quote Steve Jobs), and there are some things they can pull off with the Einsy + Raspberry combo.
At least, the future upgrades will be more future proof now that we have 24V, and the surrounding components for it.
32bit board upgrade? no probs, put a Duet or something else from Prusa in the Future in there.
