Not the first time this has happened, they completely screwed up christmas 2005 as well, that time due to insufficent despatch and warehouse staff. I was working there at the time, on the phones in customer service, and took calls all through the 23rd and 24th from irate and in some cases crying customers who'd had christmas presents and food fail to turn up. I see they still haven't learnt.
IIRC something like 8% of users had donated, so about 13,000. Most of these were probably for the minimum amount; since people were donating for extra features, not out of altruism; giving a total of perhaps £25k after currency conversions. That dosen't go far when you're running TB source, and are getting on the order of 10m scrapes per hour
As soon as Microsoft come along with a proper grown up product, and displace Loonix from one of its tiny sucesses, the Linux faithful's only response is "they must have bribed the government". Obviously nothing to do with Windows being better, or a desire to have interoperability with 95% of the world. Oh no.
... Mr Garland's comment simply isn't true. A Mac Pro configured as he suggests would be $2,927. Add a X1950 and it's $3,176. There's no option to add two X1950s, to actually take it up to the same spec, as apple don't support crossfire or SLI.
