Am I happy with ROS 4? Yes but then I've no need of features like multi-user support.

Do I have a choice? No, because Select isn't available for RiscStations.

Have I ever seen Select? No. I'm very well aware that I'm not in a position to compare Select with ROS4 and I wasn't attempting to - merely offering information as to why MD might seem to be less concerned about Select than some might imagine they would be.

Whether ROS4 is outdated or not is really down to what you need out of the software and hardware. I work for a company where every engineer would consider Select to be extremely outdated. However, given that I also have XP and linux boxes, ROS4 is currently adequate for my needs. In the same way only you can tell whether an Omega is capable of meeting your needs. If it doesn't, don't buy it.
