I think I found Framework in March, maybe? I was looking for, primarily, privacy-respecting laptops, like the Purism lines, and System76, but when I saw the modularity, I was hooked. The LTT video just confirms my hopes, and makes me glad I waited. I’ve been running a ca. 2013 Thinkpad Carbon X1 (1st gen), that’s starting to feel like it’s getting long in the tooth. I was eager to replace it, but took a chance and have now waited patiently through to the pre order day, and now to the shipping day (should be almost here!).
I’m super excited that all the new people have flooded into this community, because that makes me even more hopeful that Framework will last. You can have a great product and get killed by low adoption. Thanks, Linus, for drumming up the support for this product! We definitely need more like it.
