Zeta For the first time in its 7 years of existence, some decent statement has been released concering the legality of Zeta. Access, the current owner of Be, Inc.'s IP, states: "We have sent 'cease and desist' letters to YellowTab on a number of occasions, which have been uniformly ignored. If Herr Korz feels that he holds a legitimate license to the BeOS code he's been using, we're completely unaware of it, and I'd be fascinated to see him produce any substantiation for that claim." Update: Bernd Korz has replied on his blog.

I can't speak for anyone else but I have always enjoyed Vasper's work at setting up a system so I could very well see me using his Haiku distro.

Well, here is one problem when Haiku R1 gets released.

It will just have the basic OS. Just like BeOS.

You'll have to hunt for programs - applications, games & *additional* libraries to add on. Then you have to manually install *all* of these (and create symbolic links).

Having a distro is better, because it comes loaded with everything you need to get started "right out of the box" - no searching for software, no downloading, etc. People like simplicity and choice.

If someone wants to use Haiku, then so be it, if they prefer to use Haiku Max, then let them. The only issue for me is using Haiku in the name & I'll address this in another post.

Have you used BeOS alot? What hunting? - go to http://www.BeBits.com what was so hard about that? And as for configuration of a new program the only ones I ever found problems with were development systems that have a lot links deep into the OS itself.
