I have also been waiting for mine for over three years. While, I get that they are working to get caught up, I would not recommend ordering one until they have stock on the shelf.

Exciting times! I'm entering the next stage in my journey to bring freedom, security and privacy to more people by assuming the role of President of @purism!
