I don't believe the article is too negative: we've offered different views on the Omega and tried our best to be fair. For some people, the Omega cannot replace the RiscPC just yet, as it doesn't have USB or Ethernet support (for example). Once these are cleared up, we expect it will do. How much time is being spent on correcting motherboards hasn't been disclosed so we don't know what development time is being right now on the Omega.

Also, there hasn't been a good round up of the Omega's history for some time so this seemed a good place to mention it. Actually, whenever the Iyonix or Castle come into contact with Linux in some way, we usually mention their past engagement with it. Also, (from what we've gathered) Castle have since re-wrtitten the code that was 'based' on the lifted GPLed kernel source, so it's perhaps not an issue anymore.

I'm sorry that you don't feel this article contains 'fair comment', because like with all our articles, we try our very best to be as fair as possible.
