Zeta IsComputerOn.com takes a first look at the ZETA's multiuser capabilities currently under development. This is "a first beta, usable but still incomplete and with bugs" reports ICO. The article uses screenshots to show what multiuser looks like in ZETA, and describes how to create user accounts, as well as some of the existing problems with the implementation which, hopefully, will be fixed before release. As Magnussoft told us a few days ago, multiuser support will be available as an update to the upcoming ZETA 1.21, but no release date is mentioned.

Who still use BeOS? As a full time OS?? Why???

Well, you can play games, edit and print documents, surf the web, chat using IRC or IM, watch dvd's, DivX, XviD... listen to you favorite tunes... the os boots in less than 10 seconds in a PII 300 and is still, after all this years, what every other OS have to measure up to in terms off speed/responsiveness.

Welcome in 2006 and Zeta is nothing more than the old BeOS with better hardware support and a couple of new apps.

Yes, so is Windows XP compared to Windows 2000. And after all the dropped features, theres is little more to Vista than a Windows XP with a couple of new apps.


What's the killer app/feature in Zeta/BeOS?

Real time SQL queries, supported by the file system itself, not by the means of some Indexing Service/SQL Service/Deamon mumbo jumbo. When you have 150 GB of mp3, pictures, a few pdfs and documents, it matters. You could also consider a killer feature the ability to bring new life to the older machines.

Bottom line, there's still a place for zeta.
