Considering Chris's comment that MD aren't even turning up at the October RISC OS show (like only the *biggest* RISC OS show of the year) one has to wonder what MD are playing at.
I suspect the odds of MD releasing an Omega (or even authorising a distributor to release one) for review is probably quite slim. This is rather sad - because if Omega is *actually* nearly complete surely they'd have something to show and something people would want to see.
Not satisfying this demand from potential users and other interested parties is (IMHO) damaging Omega. Nothing the press (or people) could say could damage Omega *more* than this carry on.
