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.

Once upon a time

I drove from Edmonton, Alberta to Menlo Park, California to see BeOS and buy a copy many years ago and at the time it was very interesting for me. Today BeOS is gone and Zeta looks very outdated and has nothing to offer me over the more modern OS's. Vista out of the box does not impress me either but I know what it's capable of (eg. MS Expression Blend )

that's right. people are sick of being locked in by microsoft and apple. they are also tired of software that's not easy to use and sluggish. but what are the other options?
