"There's also a sticker showing copy '300060' of RISC OS 4. The cynical among us will presume the 3 refers to the serial number subset allocated to MicroDigital and that 60 is the unit number for that ROM.

And, I suspect, the 'cynical' have guessed wrong... My serial number for Virtual RiscPC also begins 300xxx. <ridiculous rumour alert>Hey, maybe the Omega is using Virtual Acorn software also?!</ridiculous rumour alert>. Nope, just checked my shiny Omega, and that's *not* the case ;-)

"delays in producing the Omega were down to testing and fixing completed motherboards."

Delays are never great. Surely it's a *very* good thing though that MicroDigital are sending out machines that have been properly tested, and avoiding the fiasco of having a machine that needs to be 'neutered'/'fixed', or whatever?!

Anyway, it's encouraging to have a choice of *new* machines to run RISC OS natively.
