Omega welcome guide confirmedBy Chris Williams. Published: 6th Jan 2005, 07:20:43 | Permalink | Printable
Well, that's something good, thenIt's been a while since we've heard from Microdigital. According to accounts from some sources, it's been a while since Microdigital's customers have heard from the Yorkshire based hardware developer too.
However, there has been some news: the company has reportedly sent out Omega Welcome Guides to their users, which are akin to the welcome guides that came with the Acorn RiscPC. The Omega is a StrongARM powered computer than runs RISC OS 4 and compatible software, and developed in-house by Microdigital.
"The last thing I got from them a few weeks ago was a short 'Welcome Guide', some 60 pages, but quite well written - explaining how to open the Omega, replacing and adding hard discs and CD drives, along with a 'support CD' which contains the promised bundled software (Masterfile, Ovation, Tablecalc, DrawWorks, Audioworks) - apart from the legendary 'Lynx Internet Suite' of course", says one source.
Microdigital are currently, we all hope, working on the Omega's USB, XScale and graphics sub-systems, although they've been very quiet since the Castle-RISC OS market dispute that kicked off during the summer of 2004.
