We all have, no big deal.

No, you just need to have a good laugh about this all. I suggest:
I think humor comes in handy to deal with hardware pain ;)
I have a tshirt that says:
"Debian: Good things come to those who... wait".
I love it beacuse it is both fun and true. Things may work a bit
differently here, but we do care about our users. I think freedom is
important to our users, and while I also understand your fustration, we
do emphazise freedom.
I guess you were "blessed" with an ugly piece of hardware with freedom
issues in its support. It is going to take some time until it is ready,
probably in a part of our archive that is labeled as non-free, and
maybe, as you own this hardware, you might even be interested in helping
out, if you are not so angry anymore, at least at the later testing
stages. Both distros would benefit from this work, btw.
