Haiku is supporting the Beos Community not Zeta/Yellowtab. Mr. Korz saw an opportunity to take money from the community and made a business out of it. I have to give him credit for doing so and for the effort he put in to the business. However, the prices Yellowtab charges for this outdated OS is outrages in my opinion especially compared with all the good and advanced alternative OS's we have around us. For a new newcomer in this competitive market you have to provide something special or offer something for free in order for developers and end user to jump on board. My guess is he will be releasing small updates to the OS and will charge a premium for it until Haiku is ready for their release and later will use the source code from them.
