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.

While I think you should free the software from legal and financial restrictions, you are obviously too money blinded to go down this path. However, there is a money based option you could pursue. You could authorize Magnussoft to distribute the code and take a piece of the pie. As you said, you are not interested in desktop systems at all, but you could let them handle it, and everybody could get richer.

BeOS belongs to Access and what they do with it is their business. Some people may find this difficult to understand but the world doesn't revolve around "I want." Not only that, what makes you think Magnussoft have a clue how to take things forward? Simply, the world isn't just about "me, me, me", or the last name that popped into your head.

Run along, sonny. Doing a paper round doesn't make you a businessman.
