Zeta Bernd Korz has announced that the Zeta development team and Magnussoft are parting ways [German]. The team and Bernd will continue to develop Zeta, and the service pack (Zeta v1.51) will still be released in the coming weeks.

I know that Purplus in the U.S. is still selling 1.0 and 1.21 even though Yellow Tab is gone, and is selling the 1.5 Update...

I think that Bernd should drop the price of Zeta 1.5 to $49.95 and drop out the GoBe Productive Suite to save licensing costs, and just try to grow the user base.

Instead of trying to make a lot of money on a few copies, they need to get it out there in volume so that people will develop software.

A later version with more development and functionality under it's belt might be worth $100US. But, as it stands it's my opinion Zeta isn't worth that kind of money. Especially with things like BeOSMax for free.
