It's software, everything goes wrong, and in the event that it does not it only means that we have a bug that erases users hard drives that somehow slipped past the testers.

I'm afraid that most frequent complaint will be "Why don't you release it today? You promised it!"

I'd love to be proven wrong though.

Yep. I remember the release of the Huey, someone said it may be realeased in the Week End : 590 men connected all week end long on the forum and the Huey was released one week later !

IIRC, in the very beginning, they said they want to release it by the end of last year. Well, it took a little bit longer in the end.

Coming from a guy who calls himself 'Irregular Programming', I tend to be careful and consider it the truth

BST should at lest finish the huey first or at least close to the Mi-8 pre order is out.
Just my humble opinion.

This. And also, they lack many same components.

This is something I read every day on this forum and it bothers me.
Why?
Becouse we can't possibly know how BST's work flow and organization works. Only BST knows, and that's why they are more qualified to make decisions like that compared to forum members and consumers.

IE: We don't know shit, but BST does, so let's not meddle in things we don't understand. Let BST make decisions on how to run their bussiness.

Same goes for other companies, like ED, for example.
