They got the Omega firmware right long ago. The whole idea behind the Omega is that it can be upgraded by firmware updates to make the northbridge, graphics chip and system-CPLD provide new hardware-functions wich were not there before and to optimise their existing functions in hardware to improve speed and compatability. So the hardware of the Omega I got a few months ago has improved a lot in that time, and it will become even more reliable, compatible and faster in the future. Not by finding work-arounds for hardware-errors in the software, but by actually altering the hardware itself. That is why MicroDigital call it soft-hardware. Sometime soon it will offer all the functions I originally paid for, but it will not stop there. After that I will be able to purchase further improvements to the hardware, like an FP accelerator, and receive these hardware upgrades over the internet without having to wait for shipments by post. And they will be cheap, because nothing has to be manufactured, packaged and posted. Plus the convenience of not having to open the case to add these hardware upgrades.
