robroy: People reading this site tend to appreciate the amount of work that goes into trying to keep the RISC OS community informed of RISC OS-related news.

If a company is giving away a free machine to a random exhibitor with the exception of those people who are well-placed to give an independent assessment of it to the news-reading public, that is likely to attract criticism.

In fact, even without the past history of MD with relation to the Omega, I suspect this particular restriction on the draw would have attracted a similar amount of criticism. When combined with MD's recent close-mouthedness about their project (at least on the record), it was more or less inevitable.

Inceidentally, to make a point, when Castle had their GPL moment, there was no shortage of people willing to comment negatively about Castle. I don't know why you would expect MD to be treated any differently. -- Antony Sidwell
