As for the benchmarks and MDs dismissal of Steffen's Iyonix vs. Omega but liking of Richard's RISCOSmark:

Steffen did indeed run tests with normal end-user tasks. whereas the RISCOSmark measures the odd system feature's performance. To put it simple: I really do *not* care at all how fast memory or harddisc transfers run in low level - all I care about is the speed and stability I get in real use of the system. If the system performance is achieved by good programming of the hardware drivers or by using fast hardware - what counts is what good it does me.

For this reason benchmarks like the one from Steffen tell me what I want to know whereas RISCOSmark doesn't. But I can understand MD preferring RISCOSmark ;-)
