Zeta Bernd Korz has announced that the Zeta development team and Magnussoft are parting ways [German]. The team and Bernd will continue to develop Zeta, and the service pack (Zeta v1.51) will still be released in the coming weeks.

Par for course!

Bernd is slime, and it seems everybody involved with Zeta is scum. I can't believe the entire development team can continue on, *knowing* what a sham their operation is.

I wonder if there will now be a third company to rip people off? ;)

I wish I could mod you even more negative.

This is sad, I always liked BeOS. Never really liked Zeta, but still, I always felt that it kept the BeOS spirit alive. Sometimes this project looks doomed :S

You can mod me as negative as you like, I posted *knowing* the zeta-ites would attack. That said, I fully support and LOVE the Haiku project. I used BeOS for a number of years, as well. I used to go to BUG meetings in Austin. I'm probably one of the more vocal Haiku supporters around.

I do NOT love the Zeta crew, and Bernd, because of their questionable legality, shady business practices, and so forth. Every time I turn around they are starting/joining a new company, and continuing to use questionable practices to advertise/sell Zeta. I've seen it marketed as a complete desktop replacement for windows users. It's not, not even close. In fact, I believe they were shoveling copies out the door by television advertisements aimed at "normal" people. Who in their right mind, with ANY sort of conscious, could do that?

No personal attacks in this post, so I don't expect to be modded down (disagreement with opinions isn't justification for negative moderation.) It's something that needed to be said, however, and I know a lot of people agree with me. The first post I made was just a much more "barbaric" way of saying the same thing.
