Yeah, but that's just him guessing based off information on the dev center - that the update is near-final, that Nintendo has a planned date for bringing up the Korean network services, etc. It's not like he actually knows.

I've said previously, the update is coming soon, probably not the time frame he suggested but within the next few weeks, probably sooner than later

I personally don't doubt that there will be an update, simply because it's an active system and Nintendo has been rather regular with updates on it. But that's not actually relevant to what @blahblah was saying. It's really not hard for Gary to piece something together from what is available to him. He was able to get the 6.0 right, but then completely missed the ball on the release date and details behind the update. That's the kind of issue that they were talking about in that post.

To expand on this, the only stuff Gary has ever gotten right is the information that is on the Nintendo Developer Center for anyone with Switch access to see. He can see which updates are being seeded to developers, the versions of them, etc. He doesn't appear to actually have access to the Dev Center himself, if he did he would be able to see the Network Maintenance schedule and the release notes for the developer firmware seeds. Both of which would be helpful for guesstimating the update release timing.

Gary is a grifter. He knows less than nothing.

the one thing that seems odd to me is versioning, like it should be major.minor.patch/bugfix

So for 7.0 been the next update to me, suggests that it should be something major but again details aren't know. Hopefully they are adding useful features (folders) or maybe decided to release a web browser. To me either one of those would suggest a major update :)

The features Gary is quoting come from a public Nintendo website, not the actual dev center. It's possible there are more new features in 7.0, but this wouldn't be the first time Nintendo has bumped the major version without adding meaningful new functionality - see the 3DS.

"System stability" or major undisclosed security fix then? :P

Nintendo has always been weird with version changes. They have always been interesting, to say the least. Take the 3DS 11.0.0-33 update, it did a few things, but nothing really that interesting. Then randomly one day 11.8 actually updated the TWL Firmware and broke 2 out of 3 CFWs (cakesFW somehow lived through it.) Nintendo works in some weird ways when it comes to updates.
