@FssOfDeath @ThatGeoGuy @keithzg I actually just emailed to see if I can get an update. Mine was ordered on Nov. 17 so it seems I *should* have already received a shipping notification (based on comments in the forum), but have yet to see anything.
I'm skeptical that it'll ship before Lunar New Year, at this point, which means I likely won't get it until sometime in February.
That said, I generally agree that their logistics weren't communicated well outside the forum. That said, the reason the shipment bled over was because they doubled their production run (maybe not doubled, but definitely increased it by a wide margin). ISO demand was apparently crazy so they wanted to do it in two runs, which is standard for a small supply chain.
@keithzg @ThatGeoGuy @keithzg Same. I only had a few minutes with it yesterday and didn't do much, since trying to use the trackpad without the firmware update is painful. I'll take it to work today and run the update over the lunch break. Should be much better after that.
I have no immediate plans to distro hop, but might try some other options down the road.
