mainboards on backorder
« on: December 24, 2020, 11:18:56 am »
i've been checking the online store every few weeks for the past several months and the blackbird mainboards continue to show as backordered.

can someone from raptor give insight into what is driving the unavailability of blackbird boards? i expect earlier batch(es) sold out and there is a wait for the next batch to arrive.

i am keen to get one of these systems for testing, but i would like to know more about how long i should expect to wait between ordering it and receiving it before placing an order.

It has me regretting not grabbing a second board before they sold out last summer. I need a solid testbed before Debian releases another stable.

Yes, having a second system is a good idea. My Blackbird serves this role for my T2.
