Zeta "The BeOS obsession is still an unsolved mystery to me. I threw open the crypt and ventured inside, but I left without revelation. Once I got ZETA to boot, yes, it ran reasonably fast, but whatever bug infects people with love for this OS didn't bite."

Zeta is a disgrace

Zeta is a disgrace to BeOS. It's sad that people are paying YellowTab for a product they threw a few patches on to.

Don't get me wrong; BeOS was great back in the day, but look at this Zeta.. it's ludacris.

The price, $100. For BeOS with a bunch of patches. Wow. YellowTab is sitting back making some serious cash for doing almost absolutely nothing.

The real killer is the fact that the same people who praise Zeta complain about the fact that they have have to pay $30 to get a beta of SkyOS. Meanwhile, the people behind SkyOS are actually constructing their own OS and not patching an old one.
