I think that
State machines are more concerned with the actions that can take place. FBP is more concerned with the data that is moving through the system.
is a fair assessment of the differences. With a state machine, you want to make sure that you can move through the states of the machine to some valid exit state; if so, then the machine has succeeded, else you failed. With FBP, you push data in and wait for data out, but if nothing comes out, that's just a valid response as if you did get data.

[Corion]: Krug is generic pottery ware for pouring beverages, but a Bembel is painted with that blue paint and contains only (!) Apfelwein
[shmem]: Corion: alas, air too.
[Corion]: shmem: Yes, very sad!
[choroba]: doesn't sound much useful, which means I'll probably remember it
[karlgoethebier]: "that blue pain" == Salzglasur as far as i remember
[karlgoethebier]: Paint!
[shmem]: karlgoethebier the blue pain comes after all bembels are empty
[karlgoethebier]: Confusing "Bembel" with "Membel" might result in a slap in the face in Hesse...
