Zeta Only a few weeks after the first release of ZETA 1.21, Magnussoft has just announced some details of what can be expected from the next version of ZETA. According to the announcement, the central piece of ZETA 1.5 will be what magnussoft calls project MediaFire, a completely new application for CD and DVD burning, the long awaited multi-user capability and an upgraded SAMBA implementation.

Actually, it won't. Flash is an extremely complex and close-architecture piece of software. Gnash, at best, will be like WINE is today: unstable and not fully compatible.

But the main problem is the LICENSE of the Flash creation application. Each flash animation created with Macromedia's application can only be legally viewed by Macromedia's players only. Gnash does not have the legal right to render these animation that the web is full of today.

So, GNU must also create a Creation application, not just a Player. And this is such a daunting task, that in my mind, even taking database space talking about this issue over here, is useless. It will never happen, not realistically-enough for most PC users at least.
