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.

Why all the speculation?

This says it all right here:

Bernd Korz and YellowTAB start work on Zeta - something they are not allowed to do as far as the distribution rights go, since they only have distribution rights of BeOS 5, and nothing more. Debate immediately arises in the BeOS community about Zeta's legality.

There were questions about the legality of zeta and if they had beos sources from day one. Those questions were never answered by anyone. So why now is it a big deal to hear Access say yt/whoever doesn't have one?
