monkeyson Where on earth did I say anything about perfection? The RiscPC is still not perfect even running Select they will freeze! I find in usage that the Iyonix is no less reliable than my RiscPC's. Pretty good for a completely new machine with PCI and all the other stuff that people have been screaming for for years now since Pheobe died a death.

As an example let's look at the situation with regard to USB. Please feel free to correct any factual inaccuracies.

My Olympus C730 worked fine directly with my Iyonix after the first release of the mass storage device drivers and my keyboard and mouse worked from day one. I have plugged a HP Laserjet 1200 series printer into the USB ports on the Iyonix and with Printers 1.67 it was usable within seconds without any operator intervention. I have tried a number of memory sticks that work.

The Iyonix is advertised with USB and has been from day one and it works (as does networking incidently). What types of USB devices should be supported has been clearly stated. Could I do the same things with a Mico or an Omega which have been advertised with USB from day one?

There is a difference between 'imperfect' and 'not working at all'. That was my point.
