I'm hearing that it's more like weeks than months but I am a bit worried that OM hasn't really scoped the amount of work required yet. I did get to review a copy of the product without my GPL code in it and while it installed and ran with several new features, it still needed some significant work to get back to the functionality of the Beta. I want to be wrong but there is some schedule risk.

Also, does this refer to people who didn't get the beta, or the swiftly pulled release?
Oh by the way - for those who mentioned that they didn't get their refund because it's been over 30-days since they paid via PayPal ... contact PIC directly - they really want to make things right.
For those of us with the Beta, we at least have something and that's so much better than when OM was working with HP on this product. Is ACL at the point that I would actually pay for this product - not really. But the Beta does tease at the promise of the product.
Personally I happen to be getting enough out of the beta that I feel that I've not totally wasted my Kickstarter investment, but like many others the TouchPad gets used less and less often as more advanced devices come along, and running Android apps on it when I could get a radically better result running those apps on something more up to date seems increasingly irrelevant.
