All brand marketing is like that though. You say "fall", other people say "buy in". I know plenty of people who were happy about pre-ordering the pandora, although they were of course less happy when it slipped time after time.

I would hope that it's a pretty safe deal, if they don't raise enough money to build it then they should return the money. If they raise the money then it's standard hardware in a custom box, that is easily priced.

The software will probably all be existing open source stuff with a custom skin, which they could knock up before the crowdfunding.

Then it comes down to pricing, if it's cheaper to buy an ataribox than a comparable PC then it's not a bad deal. If it's more expensive, then it's down to whether you want a linux steam box to happen or not.
