The first production batch of Jolla smartphones has been fully booked by consumers and selected sales channels. Jolla launched its first smartphone at the #JollaLoveDay event inMay. At the same time, Jolla kicked off an online pre-order campaign, which reached its first batch limit by mid-July. Online pre-orders were received from 136 countries in all.

I'm one of those who pre-ordered, so it's good news for me. They won't reveal just how many people placed a pre-order, but they do state that a typical batch (as mentioned) is about 50000 units.

Except nobody wants to work with glibc, because they act like arseholes.

As ubuntu is based on debian moved away as well, so is little benefit of them helping to develop drivers when their OS doesn't even use it.

In any-case it is really not up to anyone except for Canonical how they invest their time and money. Their stunt btw, evidence in this comment section alone did seem to work.
