Zeta Magnussoft has just announced that they are delaying the release of ZETA 1.5 Professional from 10 to 15 days in order to add a port of the AbiWord open source word processor, a native PCL6 printer driver and a Radeon x-series video driver. The addition of AbiWord is seen as a move to eventually replace the word processor component of GoBe Productive, a third party lightweight office suite currently bundled with ZETA that is no longer in development. Since AbiWord is released under the GPL, the port is expected to eventually benefit Haiku as well.

Slowly, but... steady?

More drivers, more users. An OS like that could not be interesting for general purpose users, at this level of development. I think that having a decent office suite doesn't help too much in the adoption. They have to "rebuild" the community. For now, I like it. If only Magnussoft could be more wise in fidelizing users...
