Look, am I missing some bizarre logic here?

How many *years* have we been waiting for the Omega? At least two. MD categorically stated they had worked on it for two or three years previous to the announcement. They also said it was a finished machine.

Right.

Why is it not here and how come there have been several design freezes since then?

Couple this flexibility with the truth and missed deadlines with the fact that according to MD they have spent at least 4 years developing one machine that still doesn't exist in a saleable form and you have, in my opinion, no sane reason to go for an Omega.

Now would anyone care to correct me and point out a sane reason why there is any point in going for an Omega? -- Michael Stubbs, Leeds
