Pinebook Pro & PinePhone shipping progress (2020)
Whoa, got to say I'm kind of disappointed by the harsh voices here and there. Back in 2001 I was still using an old 1987 computer with a 20MB hard disc, a 5.25" floppy drive and a 3.5" DD floppy drive (so I had to reformat the HD floppies to 720MB DD for them to work). Ran MS-DOS 5.0, used WordPerfect 5.1 or so, everything worked like a charm. But in 2001 it turned out it wasn't quite compatible with what my studies (aerospace engineering). There was internet and all that. I had the experience that Windows machines just kept breaking under my fingers so I just went with SuSE linux. I think it was version 7.0 or so. Version numbering has changed in later years but this is what it was back then. What I loved about the whole thing wasn't that everything was perfect. Instead the message was "This isn't perfect but we loved making it and we hope you like it too." Dirty hippy as I am, I could live with this perfectly fine. And so I did for years. Of course packages would break, not work etc and I was quite tolerant to that. In 2013 I started working where I work now and I got an Apple MacBook Air. They get you this welcome message along the lines of "Welcome to the Apple clique. You'll feel right at home. You'll realize this is the best product ever and you'll never want to go back." This vibe instantly made me quite intolerant to whatever wasn't absolutely perfect about it. Even though the product is quite fine, the whole arrogant message stating that it is prefect made me not accept anything less than perfect. So well, that's never going to work.

So what we are all expecting here is a product created by passionate people who are quite open about what's cool and what's not so great about their product. Even if some struggles were slightly within their control (like some quality issues), a large part isn't (having something produced amidst a couple of crises). Apparently they're sorting some last minute quality issues so I get they're not full sharp on the communication channels too. I guess that's what you need to accept when you dive into an adventure like this. It is like a crowdfunding campaign. You invest in it because you believe in it. If so, then actually believe in. It will come. Chill, go surfing, take a walk, learn something new, chill again. When it arrives, it arrives. Until then, chill. After then, chill again. Peace.
