It is so easy to sling mud and make crybaby comments but it is so hard to actually engage and move a difficult project forward. Bernd is not perfect but he has done a lot for the BeOS community.

The hard work put into Haiku is astounding and really inspirational. Zeta came along and also moved BeOS along by bringing out an upgraded commercial product that could be loaded onto today's modern hardware. I have enjoyed them and I don't hesitate to purchase BeOS related products. I actually want to financially support work on BeOS where it is of use to me.

I wish Bernd well and hope this all works out for the best. I would like to see lots of people making money and bringing lots of cool ideas into reality around BeOS technology. This would make me happy to see lots of different groups thriving.

Fortunately those that want to cry about this or that don't have to use it and hopefully once they get a little attention they will move elsewhere. I am off to check out Purplus.
