Talk is cheap. The GT03 was announced and canceled, a tentative A7
release was announced, canceled and replaced with a 5 point plan or
something , so I certainly wouldn't be surprised if neither the A7 nor
plan b happen at this point. You don't fire or create conditions for
the most important kernel / hardware / UI guys to leave if you have
growth in mind. Something new may happen, but IMHO its time to at
least consider that what you see is what you get.

The one thing for sure is that OM a company generally has a bad
reputation at this point with all this recent press - unfairly or not.
If they can overcome that image and also release new products with a
skeleton staff, then I'll be pleasantly surprised - like many of us,
I'd rather not have my time spent go down the tubes.
