Zeta A lot of things have happened in the past few days concerning Zeta, BeOS, and Haiku. In order to create some order in the chaos, Eugenia and I have created a rough timeline of what happened the past 6-7 years. Read on for the timeline and some more thoughts on the matter. Update: Magnusoft ceases distribution of Zeta. Update II: Access answered the questions posed in the article.

Fair enough. Also, you are quite correct, I made up my mind about Bernd a long time ago. There was more than enough evidence in how he conducted himself/his business to prove (in my mind) beyond all doubts what was going on. My thoughts have now been proven correct. It wasn't blind luck or some such, it's just common sense - everyone should have seen it coming from a mile away.

That said, the one thing I debate, did Bernd intentionally screw over people, or was it out of ignorance?

His follow-up to the "statement" he made today should clarify that completely. I'm leaning towards "he screwed people knowingly", but I won't say one way or another if this is the case. I will say, however, he did a terrible job in either case.

I'd argue that if he knowingly screwed people, he did a marvelous job at it.

I have reason to suspect that he did, and this timeline is missing many facts that haven't been made public yet. These haven't been made public for the benefit of the community. As long as Zeta had a chance at becoming viable (Even if it was a very very slim chance with Mr. Korz in charge), there was no good reason to help destroy it by exposing some of the actions that were quite clearly knowingly carried out.

At this point, I and I suspect others are waiting to see what kind of statement Mr. Korz makes after consulting with is lawyer before saying any more.

The last thing I want to do is open myself or someone else up to potential law suits, weather that's slander, libel, or otherwise. So until this thing is really dead, my lips are sealed.

Mr. Korz has pulled several "all hope is lost, oh wait I found another gullible idiot" stop / starts with Zeta now. I want to make sure this horse is dead before I kick it some more.
