VR and .872
A year or two back VR threaten to stop changing the firmware number for new updates. This is what has happen IMO. So I say this is the reason why the .872 has been around as long as it has.

Re: VR and .872
I think you're reaching for something to be honest. VR seems to get to a "REV #" where everything has settled down and seemingly covered (3.826 comes to mind before the .872) and generally it seems as if they only time they changed much was because a change in production (supplier etc)... or to try to improve an issue (ghosting)... then there is a whole flurry of new REV's... then they slow down.

To this extent... I can see Mike V. getting so fed up with people being able to tell for certain exactly what units of his failed spectacularly... that he could have gotten rid of it.
OR... it could just be the platform is stable, the production supply is stable etc... why change it, every change costs money upfront, why does he want to front more money if it's going good?
-Honestly, I'm shocked you didn't go the usual zombie "It is proof he is working on something brand new" route... thumbs up on (not doing) that.
Re: VR and .872
Well said. The platform is stable, the production supply is stable its good to go with no real issues, so why change it.
