I’m Jorge, from Spain. I’ve been lurking in the dark and reading almost every post in this forums since October '16. Really! I didn’t join the discussion until now because I hadn’t ordered a V and somehow I didn’t feel fully entitled to participate.
As a consumer, I was looking for a 2-in-1 device I could take around with me in substitution for a 2,7kg, 9 year old laptop. At work I use a Dell XPS 13 and fell in love with its portability, but I was looking for a more flexible form factor. While reading reviews on almost every 2-in-1 out there, I found the V. Edit: I’m also especially interested in using free software and Linux in this kind of devices. It’s good to see I’m not the only one.
As an architect/designer I also happen to be very interested in open design, participation and community-driven projects. And this is where Eve’s bold statements caught me. Since them I’ve been following the discussions and I must say I’m impressed by the technical and human quality of the whole project.
This is a very interesting case for community-driven (or at least community-influenced) design. Both Eve as a company, the V as a product and YOU all as a community could be subject to a thesis or at least an informal research in order to find good practices and areas for improvement.
I may take the second route, but for the moment, I’ll just keep reading and trying to find the keys to what looks like a coming success. I’ll also join the debates now that the product is almost done. It feels like I can learn a lot from this project and, who knows, maybe even get a V when the store opens to the public
