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.

LOL, I don't often get dragged into mud-slinging on public forums...

"So no, I won't don a tinfoil beanie and cast unfounded aspersions like you have."

WTF! I have no need nor intention whatsoever to "don a tinfoil beanie" as you put it.

I am simply reluctant to accept that the public has, as yet, all the 'facts' (for want of a better word) at their disposal to make informed judgements of this situation.

I am also acutely aware that 'fact' does not always equal 'truth' in situations like these.

The situation does not look good for Bernd Korz admittedly but lets hear what he has to say.

As for casting aspersions, I don't believe I have. On the other hand, reading your posts I notice that you make several spiteful, somewhat damaging remarks about personal preferences not to mention sacastic remarks about the intelligence of others.

Sherlock

Hmmm....are these not unfounded aspersions?

You guys are arguing again. Simply, Access don't have a business vision to make anything of BeOS, and letting it go would cost them a huge amount of money for no return. It may be true, it may not be true, but beating them around the head won't change anything apart from giving you a cheap thrill.

Someone finally got around to lifting this story and slapping it on Slashdot. I've taken a look at the comments that have rolled in and it's just full of more of the same speculative and lazy huffing and puffing from people who aren't really interested and don't know anything. Quite sad, really.

All Haiku has to do is deliver. The rest, as they say, will be history.

Note: Some people are bad mouthing Access, but their attempt to quietly resolve the issue, existing open sourcing, and freeing of BeOS related documentation should be enough to fireproof them from any spiteful Slashdot agenda.
