SparkY "certainly the way the business is run publicly, is near flawless in my eyes. So can someone enlighten me?" No I am afraid not. At least not without speculating ;o) Your assesment of Castle tallies with my experience.

JGZ "Since April 2003 there have been 11 firmware upgrades, not counting the beta versions wich some hand-picked users got." So the three incremental OS upgrades I have had in over a year of Iyonix ownership (none of which broke anything) compares rather well! So why can't they get the Omega firmware right??

To (i am assuming this is Rick) I have to say I'd rather buy RISC OS related products from Desk than even a pencil sharpener from MD UK.

"I know this pencil sharpener doesn't work completely yet but it is a new concept in modular pencil sharpeners. The block and the blade have been finished for sometime. As for the rest, we will be supplying the hole the pencil goes into right-soon-now......No really ask Rick and Julian we sent them both a hole last week. What do you mean you are not satisfied? Well of course it's because you just don't understand the concept!!".

By the way don't you think that if there is anyone who *might just* understand the concept behind the Omega it would be the author of the only CD burning software currently available and supported for RISC OS machines? This same person being the only user who has taken the effort to published extensive benchmarks for the two new and other existing RISC OS machines?

By the way, your comments about exclusion of certain individuals from the MD usergroup forums are very enlightening. Perhaps the main worry that many in the community have about MD (after the inability to accurately forcast progress) is the feeling that if as a customer you say things about MD products that are perceived by MD to be negative, your requests for support will be ignored.

Is that really what you meant 'of is het gewoon een taal fout'? Or do you really have to sign an NDA to get access to the MD support forums?
