Even if it were right its not terribly far off in the future.

We've waited this long for Rpi, with many delays, I'm sure another bump wouldn't phase us too much.

It'd phase me. No way in hell do I want to be dealing with the sort of press you get in the run-up to launch for another seven months!

Always look at the bright side of life: Might please all the members who now think they got a better chance on getting one of the first 10.000.

I think the highest cause for wars, after religion, is communication errors.

Actually, the #1 cause is plain, old-fashioned greed. 
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

Well at least it keeps them off the streets, they'd only be in charity shops haggling for discounts if this hadnt popped up.

Yep yep   Even most "religious" wars are actually a single guy abusing a group of people for his own personal greed

Let's all just ignore the complainers and trollers and give thanks to the people who have been working hard to get us this new great piece of hardware.  If you every here complaining from me, it will be after I try it and find major flaws, that I don't expect to see.

Also, reading the comment thread on Tom's Hardware is the people complaining about not getting a PowerSupply, SD Card, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, OverPriced ect.  Ok, only the first two, but I would not be surprised to see the rest of them soon.  Oh for a bitch smack key.
