It was probably a bad joke I know (with the terrorists, but I think that there are still some people who see our country in the bad way, probably not you) and thanks for the hockey stuff . Sorry that I write very long posts it’s because I want you to know as much possible to understant all of the things around Turris as possible so you can understand what’s the situation (and now I’m writing my final master thesis about Turris Omnia so I’m tuned for long text writing).
The truth is that the things have changed to better with the support generally. Turris team is very pro-english and as possible very pro-another languages (one of the main topics of the latest updates are languages in the interfaces - check it out here on the forum or in the documentation, they want to translate the user interfaces to as many languages as possible with using the community). They have even created a post for czech users about the english language preference because the most “customers” from Indiegogo was english speaking so after the original Turris 1.0 and 1.1 the CZ.NIC had to change the communication - now the Turris Project isn’t just for Czech speaking people and it’s for public (before that it was only for users who was chosen, like those in the Island ). Turris Omnia is an international product.
I think that strategy of Turris Team after the start of the year 2017 have changed too. They have a new and I think very good head of the team @Tangero and there are some new ideas and plans for all of us in the future - so these routers really will be better and better in time (more functionality). CZ.NIC even managed to reallize the next international OpenWrt conferencion in Prague - which is good not even for Turris community.
The truth is that the most valuable information you can find here (forum), in documentation, in some OpenWrt forums and in some presentations or videos from seminars which are in YouTube (yes, sadly the most of them are in czech language but there are a plenty of them in english, but not so many as in czech because of the original Turris 1.0 and 1.1). So yes the truth is that sometimes czech people knows about something new a some time before non-czech people but it’s like everything (if you or someone of your friends works in McDonnald’s, you know that the next week will be for example picnic week or something like that etc.)
So yes your points are valid (or was valid) but it’s getting better and better and now it’s another level. This project is relativelly small opensource project and CZ.NIC has limited number of workers. They do their best, nobody did anything like that before them (even now thare’s nothing like this project). I think that very soon we can expect Turris OS 3.7 (or another 3.6.x) mainly with Wi-Fi Guest mode and better OpenVPN (I know that because I use nightly OS, this isn’t secret). After that since june there are some plans about the goals from indiegogo - monitoring/statistics etc.
The last thing - there were some mistakes in the past (W-Fi gate etc.) - everybody does mistakes and I think that it’s good that the mistakes happened at the beggining (we all can learn from that experience) because it’s not so bad as it would happened in the future (start isn’t always easy). Again it’s relativelly small project and they did and do everything to repair the mistakes. Even big, experienced and userfriendly companies do the mistakes and sometimes they even don’t care.
I know that you understanded me in my first post, this is just more info about things around Turris that I see (as one of the users and fans of the Turris) and think that you should know.
