Zeta Heise, an influential German tech website, stirred the BeOS community up today by reporting that YellowTAB filed for bankruptcy [German]-- however, this bankruptcy was not filed from within YellowTAB, but by a 3rd party, possibly to damage YellowTAB. This news quickly spread accross BeOS related websites, but none of them could confirm the story. I emailed Bernd Korz, YellowTAB's CEO, and he confirmed that indeed someone from outside the company filed for bankruptcy, but that YellowTAB is in fact not bankrupt. Bernd could not disclose full details yet, as the company was still discussing this with its lawyers. Bernd did confirm that within a few days, the company will release an official statement concerning the issue.

sure hope this isn't as bad as it sounds. yellowtab looked like it was gathering momentum, and with brand new applications, gcc 4.x and open office ports in the works it would be really sad if company focus would have to shift from expansion to fighting for survival.

I too really hope Yellowtab's not in any dire state. I was just now starting to really become excited about BeOS again. I've been playing with the recent haiku builds, and they're really starting to take shape. And while that's inching closer to being BeOS, zeta was getting closer to reaching something close to what BeOS might have been had it survived to this day. The BeOS world would be a 'lot' less interesting if only one of these two options were out there.
