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.

"Someone take a port of *BSD, Opensolaris, or god forbid even the inelegant fudge of Linux and add the good bits of BeOS to something thats still alive. FrankenOS has got to be better than ZombieOS. Better still, get an Intel Mac, its essentially the same experience that Be offered but available and supported now."

What do you see as "inelegant fudge of Linux"? Please elaborate on this. Try Ubuntu, openSUSE, Linspire, Mandriva. If that's only trolling around, fine. Otherwise I'd recommend trying some Linux distributions first and then commenting on it. Thanks.

Intel Mac with Mac OS X is definetely NOT the same experiene as running BeOS on a dual processor machine then. You really must be joking - or you don't know BeOS at all.
