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.

Hmm... I am wondering if Magnussoft only had to made an contract with Bernd only.
I think YT was included too in this hole contract thing.
(at least the insolvency administrator).
Think about the first updates sold by Magnussoft. You had to prove (really prove in sending them your copy of zeta) that you are an legitimate user.
This information were send to the insolvency administrator to check if the user is allowed to update.
So there has to be an closer even licensing relationship between Magnussoft and YT(represented by the insolvency administrator).

I think that Bernd has the license for ZETA but he is not allowed sell or to talk about due to NDAs made with the insolvency administrator (yt) and Palm Inc.
But this is only an suggestion.

What I definitely know is that Bernd does not want to talk anymore about this issue and that he won't give a statement on this next week.
The one who will present a statement will be the insolvency administrator of yt.
If this really is going to happen, then I am totally sure Bernd is not responsible for this kind of things.
He may be involved as a former CEO pr CVO or whatever he was at YT but he is not responsible any longer for it.

Btw. I am really interested what licensing problems will occur in the next few days/weeks. GoBE might be knocking on the doors xD.
Which doors you have to decide for yourself ;)

But I don't want to talk too much about Magnussoft because they are very quickly in sueing people.
