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.

Where is your BeOS based distro or documentation that you wrote explaining how to setup BeOS for new users? Don't put down Vasper just because you don't care for his implementation make your own.

I don't think anyone is trying to put him down personally. I for one is just afraid of this distro mess we see in the Linux world where everybody works in separate directions instead of working together.

It should maybe be more accessible yes, and maybe a pre-patched BeOS R5 PE is the way to go, but calling it a distro and distance it from what BeOS was is something different.
