R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Recommended Posts

BTW it's 3 weeks now since the delay of the originally announced "FINAL" release date. How long should this farce continue?? Can we at least get a status update on how far the backward compatibility (if even the real issue) has come? Yes, I know the answer is no but just asking hypothetically. THANKS! (for nothing and even less so far)

So... how's "a few weeks" treating everyone?

 

The faster you guys get used to the idea there won't be a full-fledged DumaOS on the R1, the better. Have you seen their Facebook or Twitter? It's all about the new hotness.

they missed the original announced launch date by 2 years and still haven't given any kind of explanation, so dont expect anything more then being strung along until we all stop wanting want we were promised and in many cases actually paid for (anyone who purchased the R1 during the announced DumaOS period, expecting to be able to access it when promised).

 

if they were being honest about the situation they would regularly be making status updates, even just checking in to say "sorry but no further news at this time" which is the very least that the netduma crew owes all of us, but instead getting info from them is harder then pulling teeth, which atleast to me makes them untrustworthy, any there unlkely to ever earn another $1 from me without significant change in there business practices.

OMG, are there still some crying around here? Do you think that by continuing to cry and putting nonsense here they will solve something? or will they make DumaOs come out earlier?

 

Stop and touch the noses with your post nothing useful and the worst of all is that they are always the sad four ... always sadder life must have to spend the day in the forum posting shit. Not that their lives were out of a firmware ... make them look ...

what if dont even want dumaos? netduma actions would still be shit. people most talk about how they deal as a company and how they treat their customer. not all about crying that we still havent duma os. i think some have to understand that netduma is a company like every other not a group of 3 friends selling their early adopter edition router once a week.

There's very little point in an Admin posting in here to say "no further update" when I've already said it.

Well obviously the hope is that someone who does know something would update the thread.  You're right, there's is zero value in a forum mod who doesn't know anything to post about the development cycle.

 

Maybe they could just post the flavor of the kool-aid they're drinking.

Of course I also want dumaos, but what would it do me to be repeating the same thing over and over again? If you go to bed thinking that you are going to touch the lottery and you repeat it every night, it's your turn? not right? Well this is the same.

 

As it is said here in Spain: Not much early, dawn before...  keep publishing idiocies and absurdities that the only thing they serve is to warm people up

 Wow, you seem to be very upset. More in life then we people about DumaOS. Just my opinion. And even if you don't get it like it seems which is clearly to see then just let us cry. Your post was the most unproductive post in here. And we already know that they give a shit about all us crying which are legit community members/buyers. But that just gets their rep more down and down. 

 

No Duma OS won't come out earlier but it's their fault, not our so we have all right to post somewhere and let our frustration and opinion out about it. And btw you are here as well posting and spending a time of your day here. I don't want to argue but you clearly made a fool out of yourself. Thank you.

I lost the hope that posting every day will fasten smt up for a long time. I myself posting to stay in touch and to voice my frustration (which doesn't interest ND in anyway so who cares at all). And also to give a place for ppl to see how ND is treating the community and making promises they don't fulfill and much more negative things. So that they can think twice before getting an R1 especially when they want DumaOS with it.

So your main assignment, what is it? discredit ND and make it have no customers? really? Come on, what you are is a fucking troll, right?

 

really, buy a bag of friends and go out to the street to give you a little air, your life is very painful

We haven't locked it because it give everyone a place to comment.

 

If the thread is locked we'll get a whole bunch of new threads polluting the forum asking for an update. Then we have to moderate all of those instead.

Then, if we delete that plague of new threads, we'll get accused of 'violating free speech' and 'censorship' by people that have absolutely no understanding of 'freedom of speech' but they say it because they think it sounds clever.

 

You are greatly overestimating the non-existent community on these forums. The other threads have been locked before and there wasn't a "plague of new threads". Only Netduma staff can create threads in this section and the other areas are specific to other topics so there would be a legitimate reason for closing any new threads that are similar to what is currently going on in this thread.

 

For the most part this is just a support forum for people with issues using the R1 and now XR500. This thread's purpose is nothing more than a notification that a firmware update is being delayed. Why would anyone need to comment on it? Better question, why would Netduma need comments from users in an announcement thread? It's not like this is a really transparent company that actively responds to development questions etc.. They do answer support questions which is why these are mostly support forums and that brings me back to why users wouldn't be making a "plague of new threads" as they know Netduma only responds to actual support issues or sometimes announcement threads they never should have left open.

 

It has nothing to do with free speech or censorship unless these forums have zero rules in which case everyone should start posting racist, nsfw, pointless clickbait threads.   

 

Unless Netduma staff plan to regularly update these announcement threads with new posts of information they do more harm than good the longer they are left open.

Actually, it's been two years.

Do you seriously think calling out the "crybabies" will solve something? Or make anyone shut up?

 

No, it will only up the ante.

 

The first wave of complaints expressed discontent with the extended delay. The second wave follows up with how bad the PR is that three weeks after the announcement, not a single Netduma Staff Member has offered feedback. Yet they can manage to post XR500 messages via Twitter/Facebook/etc all day long.

From a money point of view they couldn't care less about the R1 users,they already

Grabbed the cash. Now it's the next cash cow aka Netgear users. And I bet the need to please them more due to the contract they signed and won't dare to loose. Furthermore hardware in R1 is more or less obsolete now. Just for the fun i looked at their Twitter since most mention that's the place to get latest info about R1, besides the delay message I ended up last year for a R1 message all else is Netgear related. Great or if you want to loose credit among your customers.

At this point, if it's not out within this month, I encourage everyone that's actually impacted by the lack of development support to leave negative reviews across the web. If they can ignore our feedback, they can't ignore our financial impact on future customers.

Frustration is understandable but insighting a riot, smh.
