Stewart Brookes' comments are very welcome, but they raise as many questions as they answer: for example, he's implicitly comparing the Omega with a non-VF Risc PC with limited memory, if his comments about Photodesk are anything to go by. As someone who /has/ a VF2-equipped Kinetic with lots of memory, I probably wouldn't see the particular improvements he describes. OTOH, for those for whom compatibility is the big issue (and I'm amongst them), I need to know whether the undoubted performance increase offered by the Omega over my present machine warrants spending /a lot/ of money, and (equally important) whether ongoing support and development effort will offered by MD (whatever the pros and cons of the Iyonix, Castle are undoubtedly actively supporting & developing it).

So IMO MD (or one of their dealers-Liquid Silicon?) would be wise to offer a current-spec machine for independent evaluation by, for example, EUREKA or ARCHIVE, and, without necessarily quoting a timescale, state what is on the to-do list for the Omega.
