Zeta Only a few weeks after the first release of ZETA 1.21, Magnussoft has just announced some details of what can be expected from the next version of ZETA. According to the announcement, the central piece of ZETA 1.5 will be what magnussoft calls project MediaFire, a completely new application for CD and DVD burning, the long awaited multi-user capability and an upgraded SAMBA implementation.

Getting Flash on such a small market requires hundrends of thousands of dollars of pay to Adobe to do the port. Magnusoft doesn't have that kind of money to pay for just 1 part of the OS only. Same goes for official ati/nvidia 3D support. These require money because special agreements must be in place, because the market is so small for Zeta that these companies don't have an incentive to do their ports out of their own pockets.

So, please get real when you request features. Request a port of the open source BlueZ stack for example, or a SIP client. These are more doable.
