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.

1) Be *never* licensed the rights to modify and distribute BeOS. Not to anyone.


Were you part of the head managment to be able to assert this so sincerely ?

One does not have to have been part of the head management to know this. Lefty was not and he knows, for example.

When a company such as Be is sold, the potential buyers perform due diligence investigations of the property owned by the company being sold.

A license to modify and distribute BeOS would have had a significant financial impact and would be disclosed during such an investigation.
