Zeta I've always been a huge fan of BeOS. However, there was no denying the fact that the BeOS was getting old. As many other BeOS fans, I closely followed two projects: Haiku, and yellowTAB's Zeta. The latter released 1.0 a few weeks ago. Here are the findings of an old BeOS user.

Absolutely

I also add that a faster boot OS indicates an OS much closer to version 1. That could also mean no features yet or no bloat.

I see W2K boots on a pair of different xp2400s takes what seems several minutes (web pc) vs maybe 1m for disconnected. The slow machine uses a crappy old 4G drive which probaly slows things down a bit.

I still hope one day OS writers will get to a 1 sec boot from the HD spin up time.
