Earth to Pine64, please respond!

Hi Marcus and Cybergenetics!

I agree with you, partially: yes it is a small powerful unit and when you play ubuntu or debian on it, it works.
even RemixOS is not too bad and some Android versions even work. Loved the almost functional Android 7 attempt!
Buth then: so does a PI3. I know the comparison is not fair, but it's just to get the picture across.

This project is still some years away from having a supportive community of builders, hackers and modders.
The industry hasn't yet picked up on Pine64 in a noticeable way, at least not to us users.
All understandable, so give it time.

@cybergenetics: to get a project reach it's goal on Kickstarter, it's not uncommon to see promises being made that are hard to fulfill, but not everything is "overhyped".
I truly believe that the people of Pine64 believed they could do all this and keep it under control. And look what they have accomplished so far.

My original post was meant to sum it up, shake some people awake that I thought were in happy dreams land, and get some coordination started that I felt was lacking.
I honestly believed that Marcus was trying to do a kind of wack-a-mole by personally addressing every complaint that was uttered on the forum, even if he didn't have all the answers.
After a few PM's with him, I now believe that he is just an honest 100% believer in the positive and how it helps this project to overcome it's initial hickups.

In the mean time I'm still waiting for some parts of my pledge (playbox and z-wave), so I'm still not a happy puppy, but I'm convinced we'll get there.
So: not a failure. Not at all. Just not a project for the impatient people that expect things to work out of the box. Like me, but I'm learning to be patient.

Regards, Erwin
