MD are selling clones too (the Alpha).

Although I take your point, Iyonix has a considerable advantage in speed and compatibility over the Windows/VARPC thing, MD has a much lesser speed advantage so it is in a more "dodgy" position - it's also not helped by the fact it costs more than the Iyonix.

I suspect MD took a calculated risk on Alpha helping to fund Omega's final bells and whistle additions while (in their view hopefully) not damaging potential Omega sales. The fact that a lot of other WindowsXP distributors (VA/R-Comp and Advantage-Six/STD) are now selling complete kit too probably doesn't help MD.

As I said a while back emulation *will* destroy the RISC OS platform (OS+Hardware).
