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 can't comment if Magnussoft paid the Zeta developers what they were owed.

I won't either, just said I heard it might not be.


I do know that Bernd parts ways with Magnussoft and then posts that he wants to open source Zeta (give to Haiku) some days later after the split. Seemed like he was upset with Magnussoft & wanted to get back at them (that is the vibe I was getting).


That has nothing to do with MS, Bernd (as he claims) has the IP attached to the changes in ZETA, not MS.

Well, legal or illegal, that has to be worked out with Bernd & Access. So, let them figure this out because none of us have written proof of any of the agreements reached and only can guess.


If everyone would let them figure out indeed before speaking in here without anything the number of comments wouldn't be so huge.
