I'm very pleasantly surprised by the compatibility of the Omega. Remember, it doesn't have any of the custom chips that the RiscPC has (VidC, etc). Critisism has been leveled at MD over their ability to effectively program the FPGAs on the machine. Well, to my mind, this proves they /do/ know what they are doing. Taking a long time in doing it, perhaps. :-)

Now, what they must do is come good on the promises of whizzy bits for the Omega. I'd lay money on them getting networking going very soon. But what about 2D acceleration, mpeg decoding, 3D stuff and the ArmTwister?
