Having lived the original Pi Model B with the polyfuses causing USB power issues and the OTG-based host port on the SoC causing lots of USB software issues....I'm very disappointed that the Pi 4 was designed in a way that violates the USB-C specification.
Worth noting that this was not a deliberate design flaw, but accidental, so saying it was designed in this way doesn't really give the whole story. It will be fixed in a later board revision.
Did you know the Nintendo Switch also has a non-compliant USB-C port? Maybe even for the same reason!
Would you care to ellaborate, how the fact that Nintendo Switch has issues with it's USB-C port, justifies this mistake? I fail to understand your point here.
Worth noting that, even tough it's not deliberate, it amateuristic to say the least. How hard can it be to copy the reference desing? How hard it is to check your work before you make it to a product? What kind of QC you would and can expect from UK company, that by according to them, is for the community rather than for the profit?
Really how hard it to take resposibility on you own mistakes? Or learn from them? Maybe, the whole athmosphere of stiking your head in the sand, instead of taking responsibility of your mistakes is to blame. How you can learn from your mistakes, if you can't even admid making them in the first place? And no, the mistake did not magically dissapear, just because you chose not to beleave in it or own it, it does not work like that here in the real life.
Errare humanum est, so the mistakes are understantable, but the way, yet again, the mistake is handled is a discrace. Yet again, the paying customers are the ones that take the hit, while the ones resposible and gaining profit from the product, shrug their shoulders like nothing even happened.
To all the fanboys ( and there are plenty!) all the bs and downplaying in the world won't still make the Raspberry pi 4 USB-C compliant and you have been, again, sold a defective product that the people who are resposible of this, have absolutely zero intentions to make this right, just like in the past with the other issues.
By statin the facts, I am most like going to be banned and the post deleted (like it seems it's custom here), while all un-justifiend personal attacks from the fanboys will stay and not get the attention of the moderators. Like you do on a honest, welcoming and inclusive forum...
