It takes a fool to recognize irony in this, because no one in the AROS team ever criticized them for "taking so long". The discussions have solely been about the AmigaONE, not their ability to get something done.
As Michal said, he just wanted to get the device out as soon as possible, DMA is going to be implemented in the next few days. I have been one of the guys who begged him to commit the driver as it is now, he didn't want to, at first.

At least I am not an anonymous coward. Look, you say whataver you want about me, but at lest put a name over there, so I know who's the fool is talking to me .-)
