I feel exactly the same. I haven't even downloaded a pirated copy of Zeta to test out in case I am actually tempted to buy it.

To begin with, I gave them (the Zeta team) every benefit of the doubt and even looked into supporting them, albeit non financial support(I was broke at the time), but just by watching they're greedy tactics, I soon changed my mind.

"I haven't even downloaded a pirated copy of Zeta to test out in case I am actually tempted to buy it."

Exactly. When people aren't even interested in creating or downloading a torrent of something, that is a really bad, bad sign. It means that people do not even want it for free.

Thats correct. I had several opportunities to download Zeta. No thank you. I'm rather interested in Haiku and wish them all the best to succeed.

If Zeta wants to get this OS adopted they need to re-think on how they approach the market.
