Three important things to note:

1.) Ethernet is apparently worked on, and probably Julian and Rick have prerelease versions of it. However, the generall Omega-using public does not have access to Ethernet at the moment, despite several promises being made by MD for end of August, September, October, November...so it is still serial port ppp for us.

2.) The Omega Owner's club and the usergroup stuff is *not* finished and therefore not accessible to most Omega users like me (according to MDE who said they couldn't register me yet).

3.) Firmware Rel. 14 is slightly faster than Rel. 12, but still manages to perform slower on my PackDir benchmark (see [link] for a benchmark description and the numbers for Rel. 12 - numbers for Rel. 14 coming soon) than the good old Risc PC.

Nothing in sight yet concerning USB, XScale upgrade, SCSI card or whatever has been promised in 2000.
