Seems like someone has never been a part of a Kickstarter campaign. There are no promises that you will get anything more than something shipped to you that is approximately what is described in the offer.
That said, most issues were addressed very quickly. There are clearly ongoing issues here, and some of it is more to do with components than the MT firmware or the founders' efforts. Would I like all the bugs to be fixed, sure. But I knew going into this that we were dealing with a startup that may or may not provide me with a fully functional product. For the most part, I've been able to use my MT without too much trouble. It has made some bad errors, and I was lucky enough to be watching closely and able to address it before I lost any batches, but overall it's mostly functioned as promised. That issue appears to have been addressed. From what I can tell, most people are happy with function, with a few who are not. Could this be better? Sure, but it is open sourced and I'm hopeful some smart developer with strong programming skills will be able to make this all that was intended, and more. There's lots of potential here.
My sense is we will see a lot of improvement once the wifi update is rolled out. TI's wifi is crap. It can't hold a connection. Sorta a big deal since we are trying to use this as an internet connected device. It appears to me the developers did a lot to work around the issue with connectivity. Maybe their fall, 2014, efforts were few and we didn't get responses that we wanted right away, but I still have confidence that the MT is a good product and works as intended - mostly.
