Chocky: And you slating the Omega at every opportunity IS helping?

I doubt it.

Whether you like it or not, people WILL buy the Omega. Whether they choose to do so because they are anti-Castle, or pro-MD, or are misled into thinking it is better than it is, or can see it as the right computer for them, or some other reason, they WILL buy it. We don't know how many, but a reasonable number of people will make a considerable investment in the RISC OS community through purchasing one.

Remember that some of these people placed orders at a time when the future was very uncertain (and still is?) - did we see you making such a commitment then? It's very easy for the people who have been whinging for the past few years to jump on the Iyonix bandwagon now and feel smug about it.

Omega owners will get support. There are developers and technical people who will own them - some already do.

I'm sorry, but it seems like you're wielding FUD. Sometimes you remind me of David Atkins.

You are seriously in danger of hurting the community with your rabid attitude to the Omega.
