chocky: Sorry for lumping you in with the whingers. If Drobe had an edit facility I'd probably have given my post a trim after re-reading it through.
You've done lots for the RISC OS market, but I don't think your constant questioning of support is helping. Sure, ask the question. But not in *every* post on Drobe and Usenet. You've made your point.
It's make or break time for the Omega at the moment, so be careful - unless you're trying to protect your investment in Iyonix, of course. If you're worried about MD's after sales support, wait until we have chance to see what MD can offer - what comes with the machine, what they put on the web, and so on. Constantly negative comments only serve to push people away from the Omega and make external support less and less viable.
And what about the support? Okay, so vocal RISC OS celebrities such as Mr Cocky and Druck may be Iyonix owners not Omega owners, but that isn't the end of the story. Your argument sounds both arrogant and dismissive of a lot of people - whether you mean it or not, that's how it comes across to me. I don't think it is constructive towards solving this issue.
If you're that concerned I suggest you buy an Omega and set up a support subscription scheme to pay for it.
