    You say late to the party, I say that working on system level *** is hard, working on open source things without losing motivation is hard, having your work shoved in commercial packaging by others with no credit is hard, dealing with whiny “better late than never” dickbags is hard, this thing by all rights of software engineering at this level shouldn’t even publicly exist.

      If your happy with the paid product your using thats great. Enjoy it. TE are getting paid to keep their product updated until they move onto the next product.

      The Devs behind Atmosphere/ReInx are developing on their own time and with no demand for income from their efforts. Its open source so other people can get involved in the future to keep the project going.

      I’m sorry but a comment like “Atmosphere/ Reinx too little too late” is just a pointless statement. It just make people roll their eyes and think “oh another fanboy stating that this or that is better”. Its not a competition at the end of the day and Devs do things for their own learning in many cases.

      Have you done any development in the scene or a scene?

      Well no, been using ReiNX with, people y’all don’t need to pay a penny. Use opensource!

      Works like a charm too.

      Exactly, it’s funny how much progress a couple of bucks does to feature set and stability. They’ve pretty much address bugs and issues in a few weeks, not years.

    At this point, is there really a point for an official “release”? I mean everything out is already based on atmosphere, which seems like more of a library of code for CFW, instead of a CFW in and of itself.

    congrats ^_^ first cfw for the switch.

    Maybe if they unveiled the next version of the switch (better cooling and better battery life hopeful) I might use my old switch for backups and emus
