If the above represents wide availability of Omega, great (and congrats to all involved) !

As to Omega's famed compatibility do bear in mind it is the case with the machine as shipped - whether it will be still as compatible when the xScale/ArmTwister upgrade is fitted may be an issue to be revisited.

The xScale is a 32bit only processor how this will co-exist with a 26bit only RISC OS is going to prove interesting.

nutfetishist makes a very relevant point (unanswered) that if compatibility is all that matters (and not speed) why not stick with a RISC PC ?

Roll on the benchmarks (RPC Kinetic 300, Omega and Iyonix) and also comparisons then and let's see what the overall concensus is....
