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.

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

Korz may have deluded himself. Like some of the more notable figures of history, he may have acted in the belief he was right. That he found himself fighting on two fronts, with legal and market difficulties, didn't help. Beaten by an "expeditionary force" of questions and the "cold winter" of crushing debt his retreat to the bunker of Schloss Korz is a sad inevitability.

Achtung Haiku!

Could you all please stop linking Bernd Korz's business failures to Nazi Germany/WW2? And if I wanted stylistically bad usage of German words, I'd go play Wolfenstein 3D. Vibe, your post is over the top, racist and just not funny at all.

People make mistakes. Bernd Korz made a few mistakes. These things happen. I think, it's better to accept them, learn from them, and look forward.

Banzai!
