What I think is funny is that so many people want the RasPi for streamers or players. I really do not think the majority of them have an idea how much work they are in for!. While they distro from XBMC is going to help a lot, they are still going to have to develop some new skills. Unless of course the developers of that distro start selling pre made SD cards.
So we have one person here posting that he is going to drop out of line. There are what? 200,000+ orders. And there are almost 15,000 registered members. So the odds are at 1 in 15,000 that people will drop out of line if the delays keep piling up. That is about 6.6 per hundred thousand. Not going to improve anyone"s odds too much I think! Of course we are not hearing from the 185,000 that are not posting in this forum either.
There are still going to be a lot of RasPii that are going to end up in drawers at the end of all of this. I hope some of those will be handed over to kids to figure out what to do with them, not gather dust in those junk drawers!
