I concur, I don’t like trotting around the shop with a full keyboard when I can have the 10-key in my palm and still have a free hand, or trying to press buttons on a screen with a mouse which never really works well if you’re trying to look at the machine at the same time, get double steps, etcetera.
Nor do I. This is much like if I updated the firmware on my car stereo and gained a couple watts of power, but lost FM radio. I’d appreciate the extra power, but I really would miss my FM channels that I listen to all of the time. I’d probably try to roll back my firmware to the old, which is exactly what I did with CM4/CM3.
After seeing all of the cool stuff happening with Carbide Create over the past few weeks I’m eagerly awaiting till the official probe and CM4 release and staying optimistic. If it never happens or I feel like I’m holding my breathe forever there are other aftermarket options which I’ve researched that will fill the bill.
