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.

What you're saying looks like Koch Media has discontinued stock sitting on the shelf that they wanted to sell. No problem there but it's a bit of a leap to distributing unauthorised works and using, apparently illegal, source code on the back of negotiations that were never completed.

This looks to me that there was nothing here other than a simple warez scheme. Instead of getting zero Bernd Korz played it big and bluffed his way through the whole Zeta affair like a con man. He only got away with it because a company had collapsed and nobody was around to say otherwise, and he milked the enthusiasm of the BeOS fan base for every pfennig he could get.

@Vibes

it doesn't declare the situation now, it only shows how ZETA starts, but the things changed in the course of time!! and that's why I am also doubtfully about some comments...

but you can read here so many untruths and specs...
