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.

All true.

Yep, they got a lot right with BeOS, but they got a lot wrong. Read around on the Haiku lists and you'll start to uncover some truths about some of the shortcomings. Particularly around the kernel.

By r5 BeOS had already started to accumulate a fair amount of its own legacy of cruft especially with BONE, the new media kit beta and OpenGL.

Consider this though. BeOS itself is around 15 years old by now.
