Oh, you and Thom know Zeta is legal. Where's the proof?

You are starting to work on my nerves here, sonny. When person abc accuses person pqr of crime xyz, it is person abc's job to provide the evidence; it is not the task of person pqr to prove his innocence. This is the very basis of modern, civilised justice systems, and your lack of understanding of this concept speaks volumes about a number of things, including, but not limited to, your age.

Haiku is legally clear as it's a new work and its source isn't in doubt.

Oh, really? Who knows the Haiku developers were not looking at the leaked Dano code when writing Haiku (1)? Try and disprove that, sonny.

Perhaps Zeta and BeOS Max can play a fringe role in building up interest but Haiku is where the main action is.

Let's see which of these projects has the most users, then we'll talk about who's playing the fringe role (2).

(1) Obviously this is not the case; I am just trying to convey a point.
(2) Haiku rules, but for now, they are the ones playing the fringe role, with probably not more than 3 people and a cow using Haiku.

So, you have no proof?

I never said I did not have any proof. I have enough proof in my possession making it absolutely clear to me that Zeta is made with the full consent of PalmSource, the current owners of the Be, Inc. IP (which includes the leaked Dano version). However, contrary to what you insist on claiming (namely, that one is guilty until proven innocent), I have no obligation whatsoever to hand over this proof on a public forum or any other medium.

I know a lot of stuff concerning BeOS and its owner, PalmSource, which covers, among other things, the deal between PalmSource and yT/Korz. However, I am not within my right to speak about this, since there is this thing called confidentiality and 'off-the-record' like stuff. Sure, the stuff I know will one day be out in the open, but as long as I do not receive said information on the record, you won't hear me say a thing about it.

Now, I let it up to my readers who to believe: me, someone who has contacts with ex-Be engineers, people working on Zeta, Haiku developers, and so on; or, you, a no-name without any form of credibility.
