If the Omega is running RISC OS 4 then I would imagine that the software side of support will be similar to that provided for the Risc PC.

When it comes to hardware, the USB uses Simtec/RiscStation's protocol - of which there is very good support at www.riscos-usb.com - as used by STD for one.

As for PCI, well it would be pretty much evens if MD release their API. (Of course, they may not have to release the source code...).

The support from MD would, I guess, depend on how many Omegas get sold. There were very few Micos sold so the costs in supporting them might have not been economical. The Omega could be a different situation entirely.

That said, if somebody goes warning users off buying a computer because of "a lack of support" it may become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
