something missing?

I had the opportunity to see Zeta (installed on HD, not the DemoCD) on a friends pc...

It seems that support for accelerated graphics is missing.. for example I opened a lot of folders and files (text) and all I got it was a taste like I was using a very heavy OS...
maybe they need to do some code optimization...

You are very possibly seeing the performance degradation due to the use of SVG tracker (note the previous discussions about SVG vs. HVIF for icons) - OR, you are possibly experiencing one of the problems I saw with the Radeon driver (assuming your friend's machine is using a Radeon card) - it doesn't seem behave well on Zeta for some reason.

Displaying a lot of files in a directory was never really quick in BeOS
