Why is it RISC OS users are so quick to jump down companies' throats.
MicroDigital offer the chance to win an Omega. They exclude other hardware manufacturers, which quite frankly is sensible. If the competition want to poke around an Omega they should at least pay for it, as I'm sure MD would have had to have done for an Iyonix. Then they exclude the press, the explanation for which has already been given; to 'to prevent wild stories of a possible bias by a magazine if they won one'. Makes sense. With all you ravaging wolves woe betide any magazine that posts a positive review about a computer they won (even though MD wouldn't take the computer away if they wrote a bad review, I'm sure).
And have you ever read the terms and conditions of competitions run by huge brand like Coca-Cola. They all have exceptions and exclusions.
Now shut up and go to the damn show which nearly didn't happen, and have the chancfe to win the second NEW RISC OS-based computer to be released in years.
