R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Recommended Posts

Frustrations ??? 09/01/2018 Netduma Team said "It will be 17 April 2018 and as promised before, it will be a FREE upgrade for all users. "

 

4 Month Zennon..

 

And a day before releasing they " Briefly Delay" , not a month , a day before..

Do you think is this correct??

Also why do you think its okay for someone who mods this forum to belittle our arguments about the broken promises that Netduma made?

 

I don't think that's ok. There are no mods belittling customers' frustrations, we have all said that we completely understand the frustration and that we have the same frustration. That's why I asked you to point me in the right direction, I can't find what you're talking about to look into it.

This is the first forum I've been to where forum mods are allowed to down talk to paying users, its really astonishing. It's also an indicator on how the company itself deals with customers. Really the bare minimum in every aspect.

Thanks!

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.

 

Thanks!

I was banned for taking a screen shot showing that the release date was pushed back again and saying "Would love to know the excuse this time". I guess that's "inappropriate" behavior? 

 

 

No, it would have been considered a 'non-constructive post', with the only purpose of riling up more discontent. Not helpful.

 

Which was your previous account?

"Any word on DumaOS for R1 users yet?"

"No but we are working hard to get it done asap for you guys."

A backward feature need one week or less..

Its not so complicated..

Backward compatibility is a problem that you could resolved in three ways , one of this way could be done in 3/4 hours of work..

I will made a post where i will explaine that way.. 

It s so simple..

For this reason i said that DumaOs haven t that problem..

 

 

Awful. Just awful.

Very diplomatic, Z. 
 
But surely these levels of snowflakery would be better dealt with via the Duma furnace? I assume the old girl still fires?
 
 
Snowflakes, be safe. Be warm. Begone.

This has been longest wait for update in history of man. Not weeks or months... Years have gone by. I've given up.

 

Pro, no offence intended...
but you're going to struggle to stay in my top ten 'best of the rest' list with this kind of attitude.

I'm just amazed how people who have been waiting years and are complaining about waiting this long are considered acting unreasonable by a few overrated and over indulging people who post in these forums.

Ding ding! We have a winner here! Lol. I think that is exactly how it went down. BTW, Alex is a Netduma cheerleader around here, rah rah, rah he goes!

It was 17th April but nevermind. The essence of what you saying is pretty clear even if its just a guess. And I pretty much agree sadly.

 

I didn't even bother looking it up, not that it matters much. What's a couple of days after year or more? When was the original DumaOS announcement anyways? I can't even remember anymore, I know last year I had the distinct impression I'd see it before Christmas. Maybe this Christmas after all?, better late than never. I almost considered the XR500, but at this point it's a matter of principal.

 

NM- I found it, July 19th 2016.

 

Original Announcement

 

Also, Check out the hashtag #RouterRevolution

 

Boy was I wrong, I though they said Fall 2017, it was Fall 2016.

In all seriousness, and without trying to pick a fight, isn't it reasonable to expect some sort of update? At least a measly, "We ran into unforeseen technical difficulties'?

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! :)

I see only two possibilities:

 

1) Netduma signed a Non-Compete clause which has still not expired. April of this year would've been 3 months from the release of the XR500. So maybe they have a 6 month Non-Compete clause.

 

2) The R1 is not powerful enough to run the current DumaOS. Or there's some other technical issue that they are having problems with. 

 

 

I don't think Netduma cares whether customers buy the R1 or the XR500. They are getting paid in both cases. 

Either way, I don't see Netduma telling us what happened. Eventually you will see a post that says; Here's DumaOS for the R1

or one that says; Sorry, No DumaOS for the R1.

This is the announcement thread. Keep it on topic.

If you want to discuss technical things, games, problems or anything else then put it in the correct section of the forum.

 

I have removed the off-topic posts.
