maikl: "Now that the computers are delivered and so there are not many motherboards to be fixed anymore"

Are you suggesting that the vast bulk of Omegas sold will be from people who put down deposits after seeing the (wildly inaccurate) brochures from two or more years ago?

Don't you think that, when the RISC OS public sees all these many Omegas being demonstrated on "the user group circuit", they'll be so impressed that there will be a flood of new orders? :-)

(Let's look at the positive side of some of the criticisms. For example, no working network card = not usually connected to always-on broadband connection = less security risks :-) )

Incidentally, I see more of the "user group circuit" than just about anyone else, and I've *still* never managed to see an end user bring an Omega to a user group meeting, despite considerable efforts to encourage people. (Presumably Desk were referring only to the user group circuit in mainland Europe).

At ROUGOL we've never seen an Omega at all (end user or otherwise) - the one Omega that was due to appear died before it even got there.

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
