Zeta A new development in the Zeta legality issue: BeOSFrance says to have written confirmation from Jean-Louis Gassee that to JLG's knowledge, YellowTAB did not have an agreement with Palmsource [French]. My French isn't exactly what it should be (I should've paid more attention during high school), but with the help of Adam and others we managed to translate the most important bit: "The impropriety and absence of an agreement between yellowTAB and PalmSource (at the time, still the owner of the BeOS IP) had been confirmed to me in writing by the person best-placed to talk about it in those circumstances: Jean-Louis Gassee."

BeOS source is coursed!

It's cursed, I mean. That must be the only explanation! Anyone who tries to use it dies. Be Inc. died, Palmsource died, yellowTAB died. Access has the code and it's still alive because it didn't look at the source, but beware!

I really hope Haiku didn't take a look at it! ;)

I try my best since months to not look at any Haiku source code (the few of mine, in particular), at least!

How come? Haiku's code is not cursed. It's a new born. You can and you should take a look at it ;)
