Confirm comment report request

Anyway it's clear why MD weren't at the show. Shows need time and money (read:preparation), all they need themselves now to get their machine on the market before Castle.

As for the Iyonix PC. No price, no availability (except: soon), no orders. In fact this machine is the same as the Omega. Seen on shows but NOT (yet) for sale. And then ROS 5. Been quietly developed for Castle (must have something to do with their previous position with Acorn incrowd). Hopefully it will not lead to incompatible OS's and troublesome harware issues. Again I wonder couldn't these 3 hardware developpers sticked together and bring out one super machine FAST (Surely feasible with their combined talents, right).

But as I stated before at least this competition will hasten MD a bit to finaly hurry things up a bit. only time will tell if there's room for competiting RISC OS machines in this already tiny market.

Unless these systems DO catch on by the general public (we can dream, can't we?)

In any case I understand Robroy hestitation by al this.
