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 talked with Bernd and he has taken the blog offline.
One reason he mentioned was to come to an end with ZETA .

I respect this and can understand this after he had to delete so many comments on his blog that where purely Indignity or defamation against him.

After all I also had a chance to grep something like an statement that indicates that he does not want to comment anything officaly because it might brake some NDAs.

The next week will be very interesting, because the insolvency administrator (or how he is called in english) of Yellowtab will perhaps announce something offically.
As far as I understand Bernd, he has nothing to say or to do in this case. The insolvency administrator will take care of the topic.
I am very interested in this statment and especially the relationship to Magnussoft.
Btw: If Access by accident broke any NDA they might have a problem too.

But nothing more for today.

The last thing I want to say:
I am very sure that I bought an(many) legal ZETA Version(s) from Yellowtab until version 1.2 .

So you are seriously suggesting that there is an NDA prohibiting Bernd from reassuring his customers that what he is doing is legal?

C'mon, this is either a lame BHOF excuse or Bernd has acted extremely stupid when signing it. Now, in the unlikely case that this should really exist, why the heck should Access suddenly make false public statements?

For whatever reason should David Schlesingr suddenly start pointing fingers at Korz, if there is no reason and there is zero economic interest by Access towards ZETA?

If so, why did Bernd write on his (now vanished) blog that he would make a statement?

Sounds like Bernd is passing the burning potato to someone else. ;)

PS: www.yellowtab.com is also gone.
