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.

Bernd & Magnussoft

Magnussoft paid for devleopment costs for 1.21 & 1.5 and can not sell these products until Zeta's legal status is determined. And even afterwards, may not be allowed to sell it if Bernd loses or status never gets resolved.

Magnussoft got the short end of the stick and I'm sure they are kicking themselves now.

They also have a right to take legal action against Bernd.

If Bernd provided statement to Magnussoft saying he had the right to produce and sell Zeta. And if Magnussoft kept copies or has signed agreements with Bernd to this effect, then Magnussoft can go after Bernd legally ( and will if they can gain from it ).

So, it could get kinda interesting. Lets see what happens.
