Too expensive

99 Euros (~$125) is too expensive for an OS with less functionability than the competition. Especially since I could buy Windows XP Pro and Mac OS X for less on Price Grabber and Amazon. This is not to mention what we get from Linux for free. Hehe. ;^)

I agree that they could have better (lower) pricing.

Lower pricing would definately help get more users onboard with Zeta.

The higher price will scare off new users.

At least Haiku will be free, but you have to wait 1 year for release & another year (or less) after that for an improved version.
