It looks cool, I want w=one as a toy, but until they finally start shipping it's nearly vaporware as far as I am concerned.

Did you by any chance say this last night on #raspberrypi? There was a discussion about just that, so I'm curious.

Nobody here is angry nor raging, they're not a charity (yet) and it's not a toy either. People have every right to express disappointment.

With the atv3 coming out recently they probably lost half their potential customer base so they're really letting themselves down first and foremost with the screwups.

What's an atv3?

Apple tv 3, it does 1080p video and once it's jailbroken it will have xbmc which was the only reason i ordered a raspberry Pi

You're going to pay the hardware premium of an apple product so that you can jailbreak it and install xbmc?

This is veering dangerously offtopic but what price premium? If there's another cheap box to run XBMC on then I'd love to know about it as the only options I know of are literally
-Raspberry Pi
-atv3 when a jailbreak is released.

Oh holy poo poo, I didn't realize they were as cheap as they are. $99 makes a lot more sense. Also, I realize that XBMC is probably an app on iOS and not an OS huh?
Together that makes a lot more sense. My apologies for the confusion.
