I haven't read the entire article, but even the first few paragraphs contain many factual errors. , and I couldn't bear to continue.


It gets the history and parentage of OpenWRT (sic) wrong, doesn't bother to explain what "bricking" is, makes mention of a mythical "WRT kernel", and claims that Kamikaze is experimental (it was released just last week, and the article is dated after that), to name but a few of the errors.


All in all, don't take this seriously.

    How constructive this remark is. Can't you add links to the real stuff then? Or better, warn the writer about the errors, so he can correct ?

      "How constructive this remark is."

      Indeed, it is, thanks.

      "warn the writer about the errors, so he can correct?"

      I thought I did - with these comments. I'm hardly in a position to correct them _before_ he publishes, am I?

      If I were to correct all the errors in the article, it would take a long long time, and be substantial. It's not worth my time - there's already far better and far more accurate information on OpenWrt - on its Wiki.

      If it were only a couple of minor errors, it would be different. But you cannot excuse these glaring errors by saying it's "not constructive".
