Benchmarks between machines might be interesting, as Omega has the potential for codesign (ie the FPGA's could be used for hardware acceleration of inefficient algorithms).

As a "general purpose" machine, perhaps the Omega has a way to go, but for some specific applications it *could* be a scorcher. Imagine having hardware accelerated database searching, pattern matching, encryption, parallel decryption etc. Not the sort of thing a general desktop user might need, granted....
