Zeta A lot of things have happened in the past few days concerning Zeta, BeOS, and Haiku. In order to create some order in the chaos, Eugenia and I have created a rough timeline of what happened the past 6-7 years. Read on for the timeline and some more thoughts on the matter. Update: Magnusoft ceases distribution of Zeta. Update II: Access answered the questions posed in the article.

I have other questions:

1) Can anyone draw-up a whole timeline for the demise of Beos, the rise and fall of Zeta, the rise of Haiku, and the status of things like Cosmoe, PhOS, etc. over the intervening time since Be died? I think that would be far more informative.

2) Palm: it's been a question bugging me for some time, what did Palmsource do with the Beos code itself? The question is partly and apparently answered in articles like this one:

http://www.palminfocenter.com/news/7375/palmsource-acquires-china-m...

i.e., that Palmsource did make use of Beos code, seemingly, in Palm OS, but I keep hearing that Palmsource never had any interest in the Beos code or 'developing' Beos (which it would have been doing, albeit under a certain guise, if Beos code has been used at all).

As I say, I have no idea about all this, but my curiosity got the better of my ignorance.
