Well, for me the first basic production version of Omega never looked like a very "attractive" machine. But I saw the potential in the design. MicroDigital had plans to produce (and prototypes for) upgrades to the basic machines via the ARM-Twister interface, wich had the potential for getting us up to, and beyond, the performance of PCs. This would have included, among other things, the user-programmable FPGA with four embedded PowerPC cores and the XScale chip. Of course they never intended to make the basic system-FPGAs user-programmable.
Unfourtunately MicroDigital had all these set-backs in development. In the end the Iyonix was first to market and the Omega lost too many sales.
