Right now, only MD knows why anyone would want an Omega rather than an Iyonix. We can speculate about upgradeable CPUs and re-programmable FPGAs, which may or may not make it a better buy, but given MD's track record in releasing stuff and appalling PR then who knows? If MD actually get a 1.2GHz ARM 10 Omega out the door, then fantastic but until then anyone wondering which one to buy is just going to have to wait. On the upside, assuming the Omega gets released, and sells in reasonable quantities, maybe a third party like Simtec could build an add-on Xscale or ARM10 board.
