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.

"No, it isn't:
sales figures of Zeta were far below Magnussoft's expectations. Continuation of financing the project is economically no longer viable. "

Do you, or did you work for Magnussoft? Do you know _for sure_ the above statement to be fact, or are you just quoting their public statement on this issue?

What authority do you have to repeat their statements in _bold_ letters? ;o)

Ever cross your mind that this could be the most _convenient_ statement Magnussoft could make without having to admit in a public way that they(MS) had been taken for a ride over the code legality issue by Korz?

If I were releasing statement on behalf of Magnussoft, I know what I would rather have the general public believe...the last thing I would want is to admit that my company had been stupid enough to be duped.

And no, I'm not trying to defend weak sales of Zeta they are IMO, dismal. Consider though, that this weakness might just be a way for them to drop the whole damned mess that is Zeta.
