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.

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

I *never* stated Magnussoft has the IP, only that it *appeared* Bernd wanted to get back at Magnussoft because he *seemed* upset at them (the feeling I got). The reason is not known, but my guesses would be probably for stopping payment of the development, or maybe for not paying the developers, or ?.

I realize that Bernd acts like (though never said in writing) that he has a licensing agreement to develop & sell Zeta.

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

You are right, and I've done quite a few posts in here, so I'm pretty responsible too, but I found it to be interesting and wanted to respond, comment and speculate, maybe a little too much, but I thought I had a right to do so.

It was my understanding that we were supposed / allowed to post *any* comments and thoughts on the posted articles, news stories and other board posts.
