Re: Life in the slow lane?
I would tend to agree, although in my case I just want the board, as I have two Zero's at home.
From what I've seen in interviews with Ebon Upton, the Zero's are being "fitted in" around the production of the Pi3 (and Pi2), but as they're much simpler boards and only single sided, the Pi3 isn't actually causing any significant delays that weren't there already with the Pi2.
There are plans to up production of the Zero too, and so he said they are catching up quite well with the backlog, so who knows they may be lucky? Apparently the key point is that Farnell aren't involved with the manufacture of the Zero, only with the larger boards. Hence why it's being "fitted in" rather than mainstream productioned (and of course the popularity of it took everyone by surprise).
