Zeta Magnussoft, the company now responsible for development on Zeta, has announced it is accepting pre-orders for Zeta 1.21. This new release will include multi-user support, will be built with GCC4, among other improvements. Bernd Korz's weblog contains more information. Korz was (is?) the CEO of YellowTAB, the company that started Zeta. Read on for a short editorial on this announcement.

Up until now, the Yellowtab/ZETA thing never felt right with me. Yellowtab never portayed a solid image to the outside. Never did they answer all these questions that potential users had about Zeta and yellowtab. Whether they had access to the source code for example.

And they just keep on doing their business in this manner. Like this bankruptcy stuff and Bernd working for Magnasoft now. If there's one thing they should have learned by now it's that users want to deal with an honest and open company!

On top of that, the product they deliver feels like a buggy beta version of what the next BeOS might have turned out to be. Yet they have the balls to ask a crazy amount of money for it and not even release a free demo!

Well, as you can see I lost my faith in Zeta completely. This is absolutely not meant as a trolling post, just an honest opinion from an old BeOS fan ;)

The only problem with that is that the Live CD can *ONLY* be burned with Nero since the .cue file is borked and doesnt work with *ANY* other burner software (at least not any I tried).
