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.

RE[2]: "Just the facts, ma'am..."

Member since:

This wouldn't be necessarily relevant, even if it were accurate. If someone, say Mr. Gassee, had some back-channel agreement of some sort (and I can't see how that's possible, frankly: corporations and corporate officers have fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders, and even CEOs can't simply give corporate assets of significant value away on a whim) and it wasn't disclosed to Palm at the time of the purchase of Be's intellectual property, Palm can't be held to that agreement.

As I've written elsewhere, if you sell someone a car but fail to disclose that the bank holds a loan on it, you can't expect the buyer to pay you and the bank as well. And the buyer's gripe is with the seller, not with the bank.
