The advanced availability of the 80200 doesnt appear to have had any effect on an "Omega with XScale" availability though, so thats really a mute point. The demand for MIDI is virtually negligable against the demand for fast stable Ethernet, and USB stacks. PS/2 and paralles are usefull additions, not essential and are now regarded as "legacy ports" with the move towards USB for keyboards, mice and printers. I admire Castle for having the guts to leave these out to obtain a shorter time to market.

The one big advantage the Omega does have is Select, although personally theres no features in Select that I require.

Claiming that MD have helped the RISC OS market by providing competition is a very weak argument IMHO. Do Castle really consider them /serious/ competition I wonder, and if so, would Castle have done anything differently if MD did not exist?
