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.

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 ).

Bernd Korz has a nice big house and a share in a print business, and that's got to be worth money. He seems to have a lot of fingers in many pies so there might be even more assets worth seizing. Apart from the Barlow Clowes and Robert Maxwell fraud cases, this reminds me of the Polly Peck affair, where Azil Nadir build up a business, ended up fleeing to Northern Cyprus, and the assets were picked clean. In this case Magnussoft seem to have a direct dealing with Bernd Korz, not a shell company like YellowTab, so this might lead somewhere interesting.
