"But do you really hold out hope of ARMtwister being available and properly usable, during 2004? Tell us what you really think."

I *always* say what I really think ;-) I hope you'll excuse a little bit of prologue: as the situation stands, MicroDigital are shipping a highly compatible and expandable computer: the StrongARM machine which they billed as a 'go-faster RiscPC'. All I can say with certainty is that my Omega offers a smooth RISC OS experience, it is remarkably compatible, and I use it productively.

I'd like USB, and hopefully Omega users will have that before much longer. I'd also very much like to have the excitement offered by the optional XScale upgrade. In the meanwhile, I already have what I regard as an impressive machine. Why am I prepared to wait? Well, one of the things that attracted me to the Omega was that it offers an exciting, and in some ways 'radical', vision of a RISC OS computer at its most flexible.

Will ARMTwister arrive in 2004? My best guess is that it will. As Steffen said in another thread, producing a machine which runs an unchanged RISC OS is a "remarkable technical achievement". They've managed that, I trust that they will deliver ARMTwister also.

"Nice to see choice in the RISC OS market, isn't it ;-)"

I agree. I like your positive attitude too. It's a good slogan that you've adopted -- I may even borrow it myself ;-)
