Zeta For the first time in its 7 years of existence, some decent statement has been released concering the legality of Zeta. Access, the current owner of Be, Inc.'s IP, states: "We have sent 'cease and desist' letters to YellowTab on a number of occasions, which have been uniformly ignored. If Herr Korz feels that he holds a legitimate license to the BeOS code he's been using, we're completely unaware of it, and I'd be fascinated to see him produce any substantiation for that claim." Update: Bernd Korz has replied on his blog.

It pisses in the face of everything that was BeOS.

In fact, I think I would say I agree here. *Every* new person that wants to try BeOS gets directed to "BeOS Max", which is sad. Max IMHO is moving away from what BeOS was/is.

It has the patches yes, but those can easily be obtained anyway. What you get instead is a *lot* of bloat and an altered look.

I don't think Haiku aims to be _just_ a _base_ system for a given distro to build upon! Haiku will include the basic yes, but you can easily tailor it to your needs! I don't see the problem with that.

I hope we don't need to see this distro mess in the Haiku world. The best would be if all could work together providing apps/drivers instead of moving in separate directions!
