TonyStill: That's the point... MD are spreading FUD about the OS which is blatently untrue. Blaming RISC OS for them being unable to produce their working ethernet is just nonsense. The TRUTH is that the RISC OS network stack, as stands, only has a throughput of a few MB/sec - with only 10baseT cards at best available until quite recently, that was sufficient. This could be improved by updates to the Internet module to run at higher rates, but the point is the achieved DATA rate is of no consequence to the ethernet SIGNALLING rate (ie 10baseT/100baseT/Gigabit) as MD would like to have everyone believe. Has anyone asked them the simple "If Castle and Simtec can make a 100baseT card, why can't you?". Hell, even a 10baseT card would be better than nothing on Omega, now wouldn't it?
The saga rolls on and as I see it, the more Atkins tries to bulls*** his way out of this hole, the deeper he ends up digging. If it wasn't such a shame for this market to waste its time on this nonsense, it'd actually be exceedingly funny to watch.
