Exactly, this is a board produce, designed and distributed by an enthusiast group not by OEMs such as Gigabyte, ASUS, Foxconn or MSI with their teams of engineers and factories specializing in production of MB. OEM also have input and help from chipmakers such as AMD and Intel. So, don't expect a polished, well supported, product. This is an enthusiast product with some quirks.
For the same reason, I doubt we'll see much if any across this side of the pond. Their production run is so low that their market within their city alone will consume whatever they have. From their perspective, unless they plan on selling the commercial rights to an OEM, why would they want to put up with the whining, groaning and complaining that comes with dealing with the Western market? In this thread alone there are people whining about this feature or that, pricing, etc for an enthusiast item that they are likely never ever getting a hold of.
My my perspective, I think what the folks over there are doing is brilliant and well done. Congratulation on getting this far while the rest of us have done nothing but complain about the good old days. I hope they continue to refine and perfect this. I would love it if they sold their commercial rights to an OEM so that we can order one off of Newegg knowing the risks, features and $$$ involved. I'm afraid this is more dream than reality but dreaming is free and full of features.
