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.

"Now, I let it up to my readers who to believe: me, someone who has contacts with ex-Be engineers, people working on Zeta, Haiku developers, and so on; or, you, a no-name without any form of credibility."

Before I make any comments I would like to qualify myself. I am not an ugly American with anti-European or anti-Asian attitudes. I was raised by my grandparents, I'm 43, one of whom served in the then Army Air Corps in the European theater during World War II, not to be so judgmental of others.

I, myself am of French, Swiss, Welsh, and, yes, Deutch, ancestry. Specifically to the Deutch ancestry it can be traced to Johann Jacob Bender and Maria Elisabetha Zimmerman of Eschelbach, Baden (1693). BTW, for those who may be light on the geography, Eschelbach is located in the southern area of Germany near the Swiss and Austrian borders.

My point?

All this name calling and anti-whatever is worthless. Calling people a `no-name`, interpreted to mean worthless, is just as empty as calling someone a member of the NSP of WWII.

You're an editor. You don't need to justify or call people down. I thought OS New was supposed to be about operating systems.

To express my own views.

Being civil, or at least considering myself to be, I would have to agree there is no proof Bernd has stolen anything. He is, by western standards, innocent until proven guilty of any criminal activity.

On the other side of the proverbial coin, I would also agree it would be more comforting to, at least from the number I see here at OS News, if he would produce something to null their fears of criminal activities.

After these things are resolved we can move forward with what I consider a `still valuable` operating system.
