Okay, that"s in your power, but I can"t see I"m not civil. I"m merely expressing my disappointment with broken or at least misleading promisses. You did yourself claim production start a month ago, didn"t you? (http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/509
In fairness, I don"t think that any promises had been made. They told us when the boards went into production, and that they hoped for a 3-4 week turnaround, but despite a near constant barrage of people looking for a sale date, they quite rightly resisted making any promises.
The grand irony is that the more open and forthcoming the foundation have been regarding the process, the greater the apparent temptation for people to question their decisions. This is not aimed specifically at you, but at the disproportionate reaction to issues such as Chinese manufacturing, "kit" boards, fully open source, and all the other stuff that hardly anyone cares about for 99% of their gadgets, but which are apparently major issues for RPi. Are we to suppose that manufacturing delays never occur for commercial operations, or is it just that they don"t tell you what they"re up to until ready to ship?
