    TBH, I don't think they give a brass shiny shit as to what the likes of you and me think, mate. It pains me to say it ('cos it makes me feel old), but we're probably a generation or two outside their target audience.

    I don't disagree with anything you've said, Macca. What annoys me is some of these Oik's are blatantly calling Iain a liar. Insinuating, or flat-out saying, he's stuffing his mouth with Netgear gold and running for the hills.
     
    IMHO, I think that's way outa line, and I'll call it when I see it.

    I don't think there is anything to achieve posting about the OS delay
    I think every argument possible has been put forward and STILL nothing has come from the Duma team. The silence is deafening, the time of the delay announcement was inexcusable, but no amount of posting is going to change the fact that is has not been released, is not likely to be released on this version of the Duma.
     
    I far one, and I speak for myself, am not , and will not lose any sleep over it. For you guys that bought the Duma on the promise of an upgrade etc I can understand your annoyance, anger and frustration over the situation.
     
    But it has not made ANY difference at All and we have 33 pages of nothing! Once the announcement was made the Duma team wound their necks in and battened down the hatches and have not yet come out of the bunkers.
    Except to put their nice new OS on the XR500..........

    I can't believe that everyone is still pissing and moaning over the R1 not getting updated. I come on here every few days just to have a laugh at all the people still complaining. Let's face it folks, they should possibly update it eventually, and if they don't, just get the DumaOS. That's what I'm doing eventually!

    That's not how it works. The Advertising Standards Authority nor the Consumer Rights Act cover a delay to the release of a free firmware upgrade.
    Stop spreading misinformation and stop trying to stir.

    How about this boys, most of you know the situation that us mods are in. Which is trying to keep things civil and still answer questions about the issue at hand. And most of you also know that we don't know anymore than you guys do about the release. None of us are employed by Netduma, we try to help out on the forum, don't get paid for it, just really liked the R1 when it first came out and helped people who were having issues with the set up in their home networks.
     
    I don't think any of us in their position with the opportunity to partner with Netgear would have done anything different than they did. It is a business at the end of the day, and anyone in business knows that you do what is best for the business and growth of the product you market. Believe it or not we didn't know anything about the Netgear deal, until it was announced. Again we aren't on the inside of their business dealings, meetings etc, were just  owners and paying customers like everyone else on here.
     
    I myself am disappointed that the update for the R1 isn't out yet. As I've said all along I am a OG Duma fan as it has some things that the XR 500 does not. Yes I have both but my preference is still the R1 as the features that I'm really interested in are gone be on it, anti spike and anti jitter to be specific.
     
    Again as much as we would like to "make them" tell us something, we can't. We're in the same boat as everyone else patiently or impatiently waiting for any word on the status or the actual release of the new OS. Until then we're just trying to keep the peace, which as you guys are well aware of is not an easy task at this point.

    Obviously there are a lot of disappointed people on this forum regarding the delay of DumaOS.  I was disappointed to, but I understand and support the reasons why.
     
    I think we have to bear in mind that this update is very important.  A roll back is required for good reasons.  The main one giving people the opportunity to revert back to the older version, but also in case the new DumaOS has a problem.  
     
    Let me explain, if DumaOS had been released and we downloaded it and there was a problem, it could have caused a lot of issues for everyone possibly bricking the R1s and leaving us with just our routers.
     
    It is frustrating for us, but I believe this is all for the best.  We will get the update eventually and all the wonderful things to come with it.  I am looking forward to it and checking back daily for the news as I am sure most of us are.  Lets be positive rather than negative, these guys are working hard to get it out.  We're going to get a great update that will make a massive difference to our gaming, it's got to be worth the wait.

    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!

    Having read some of the wild speculation surrounding the delayed release of DumaOS, I thought now might be a good ttime to point out there really are more important things in life to be worrying about.   Word has reached me that our once great and fearless leader, Mr John Dillinger, has been rendered incommunicado by a particularly aggressive strain of flesh-eating bug.    I'm told it ate away his arms, then his legs and finally his body before it was brought under control. Now, he is reduced to just a head on a pillow on a life support machine.   My dilemma is, what to buy him for his upcoming birthday? He already has plenty of hats.   All suggestions welcome.

    And what in the name of Greek buggery is going on here?
     
    Dissension among the rank and file? The great unwashed daring to get ideas above their station? Such treachery would not have been tolerated during my time roaming these esteemed halls.
     
    And never mind page after page of this self-entitled, whiny, conspiracy bullshit. Why hasn't the knuckle-dragging Vanilla lowland been unleashed to quell this foetid uprising? Who has the dubious honour of holding the keys to his cage nowadays? - @Crossy, @Fraser, @JD, @Zenon??
     
    To the rabble-rousers, a word in your shell-likes...
    You may think you're pretty good at this bitchfesting thingy, so you will be disheartened to learn you're all pretty shit at it. None of the barbs resonate because they're tired, rehashed and, quite honestly, pathetic compared to what's gone before. They smack of pre-pubescent angst and the ramblings of admonished children; consequently, nothing hits home. Overall, it makes you look terminally stupid so put away the scatter-gun approach to insults and veiled threats. Stop ejecting toys from prams and wait politely in their house for your FREE upgrade.
     
    @Fuzzball - By my return, I expect to see your opposable toes firmly gripping the throats of these pusillanimous little skid marks. I sense the peasants are revolting, and it's 'Vitai Lampada' time for the Duma Army and its brethren.

    I understand the frustration and that is why I have not interacted in the thread letting people blow off steam, I have seen people posts about crying, this is incorrect voicing disappointment is not crying. I wish it had been launched already with more gamers using DumaOS as I am sure Iain and the team do too.
     
    Has licensing to Netgear scuppered earlier plans for a 2017 release I am sure it has, I think that any business would be crazy to turn an offer from one of the biggest router company's in the world.
     
    Has the above upset users of course and Iain will be gutted it has, he is now under pressure twice as much as he used to be, probably more and is fighting to get the DumaOS out for everyone.
     
    I may buy a XR500 soon but looking at the specs of the R1 firmware and the Netgear firmware the R1 does so much more at the moment. I am sure when Iain releases it for the R1 he will then have time to write new RApp's and then it will catch up and then super seed the R1 but for now for me the R1 fw is where its at.
     
    All of the above are my thought's and not of Netduma as I am just a gamer and help out when I or if I can.
     
    Have some people taken it a bit far, yes but only because they have been wound up by other member's to a point where they are getting even more annoyed.
    If there has been any behavior from mod's or members that is deemed inappropriate please use the report process so it can me monitored and dealt with accordingly.
