The more I look over Netdumas twitter page the more I think that update about something big wasn't for the R1 at all.
The only mention of the R1 seems to be people asking when is it going to be ready.
They sure seem to talk about the XR500 and how great it is.
Not so much about the R1. Maybe the silence is a hint.
I love conspiracy theories! I agree the silence is deafening,
Conspiracy theory 1 maybe the Netgear hierarchy told Netduma "You can't give the OS for free when our customers have to pay for it"
Conspiracy theory 2 "Netgear "If you delay the roll out of the OS, the Duma customers will get pissed of with waiting and buy the XR 500 and we will give you a cut of the sales".
Conspiracy theory 3. Duma "We can't the OS to work on the Duma, backwards compatibility is not going to work. Blame the lawyers!
I am thinking that, quote from Hamlet "There's something wrong in the state of Denmark" lots of conspiracies in Hamlet!
