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.

>You understand, you wonder, you think. Do you have any hard facts to counter ACCESS claims?

There are hard facts that I don't want to post here or want to discuss here in this or any other forum in the net.
Try perhaps reading between the lines of my posts and you get some information I wanted to transmit in an indirectly way.

Btw. One is very very clear to me and thats even not denieable by Access. There was a contact between former Palm Inc. and Yellowtab.
There was also an meeting (Bernd and JLG) where Bernd shows JLG ZETA 1.0 and JLG even bought or got an copy of ZETA 1.0 .
I don't think that JLG ever bought or got an product that his company saw as an illegal program.

The next week will hopefully bring clearity to all issues here.

Just like Bernd Korz. Lots of claims, no evidence.

A license to mow the grass doesn't give you the right to live in the house.

Or more murky if Bernd Korz flees to Northern Cypress like Azil Nadir.

Vibe I'll promise you that if next week (to be exactly it is this week because sunday is the start of the week)
there won't be any offical statment on this issue I will post everything I know and get to know about this issue and even more.
At this time I cannot say more, because I don't want to run in any trouble. I still have to discuss some things and read some laws before I can say anything directly.

I really like to say directly what I get to know but I can only do this if someone garantees me that I won't have any trouble in the future.

So sry but the topic is so highly complicated and legal consequenzes in saying something are so unsure that I can not say any directly.

Wait until next Thursday then everything is getting clearer !
And Bernd is definitely not leaving the country or fleeing ;)

Any assumptions that ayone could make from reading between the lines are useless. You could claim to know stuff that none of us here know, but if you can't provide hard facts, all your are then doing is feeding more speculation. This does not clarify anything, but rather muddles the situation even more.

Contact does not necessarily constitute that a contract was actually sealed. If there was a legitimate license agreement, yT had the chance to disclose it to ACCESS when the cease and desist letters were sent, or even soon after the recent allegations were made, and then we would not be discussing this here today.

That Bernd met JLG does not prove anything. Besides, do you know for a fact that JLG bought ZETA, or is this more hearsay?
