I want to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for everything @nrp and the entire Framework team has done and is attempting to do. You’ve shipped a product that many thought was impossible, made strides to change an industry that was firmly entrenched in premature obsolescence, while still delivering a machine that by all measures is a pleasure to use and highly competitive with traditional laptops.
In spite of all this, I find myself enormously frustrated to read the near-constant stream of nit-picks and demands from people who have either never used the device or have already expressed no desire to own one. Even as someone who has no ties to your company (aside from buying your products), it saddens me to see our “community” behave like this. I can’t imagine how much of a creative and emotional drain it must be on your team.
I hope this post serves as some small relief to your day, and I hope you’re able to find some space to catch your breath and appreciate what you’ve created. There are many of us who are quietly getting work done and enjoying guilt-free computer ownership thanks to your efforts. Please keep it up, and we’ll be here to support you.
