Zeta Magnussoft has just announced that they are delaying the release of ZETA 1.5 Professional from 10 to 15 days in order to add a port of the AbiWord open source word processor, a native PCL6 printer driver and a Radeon x-series video driver. The addition of AbiWord is seen as a move to eventually replace the word processor component of GoBe Productive, a third party lightweight office suite currently bundled with ZETA that is no longer in development. Since AbiWord is released under the GPL, the port is expected to eventually benefit Haiku as well.

The problem is that they don't really look interested in getting much outside adoption. Just look at their website... the english version is poorly written (You end up downloading a "LifeCD" iso) and let alone having Spanish, French or Italian versions.
The OS itself does look interesting and I'm sure it is, but you can't expect people to buy from someone who can't really put togheter a website. It's sad to see BeOS like this...
