There are some on the wikipedia page but I suspect some of them are outdated given what's said in the article. I was interested in reading about their VM setup and how they communicate with each other and what platform they're using, etc, but I can't find any details anywhere. I went through their blog, their forums, the affiliated articles, etc. Does anyone know where one might find more details of their infrastructure?

It panders to its dues paying members. It's worse in some areas than others but I've had absolutely no resolution from some places where the BBB just auto-deleted the complaint after awhile, automatically siding with the business.

The BBB has no gov't oversight and is not accountable to anyone, but it poses like it is to give a false sense of control to consumers.

Yea it does, dealing with this right now at work where all staff went from Office 2K3 to 2K7 to 2K13 in the last 2 years. They all hate the changes but a handful of managers that are in a building elsewhere make these decisions without asking for the opinions of the people who actually use them. Hooray for bureaucracy.

This article is from the end of last year. I admit I haven't looked at them since, maybe their not terrible now.

However, I have a Surface RT from work running an nvidia tegra 3. I can count on one hand the number of times I've used it. Mine is jailbroken to run classic start and putty and a few other things but it's locked down with a "secure" bootloader aka can't run fuck all else and is essentially an even more crippled version of Windows 8 (which I personally loathe). Kindles have gone this direction too, shitty walled gardens.

Don't vote for this kind of garbage with your money.
