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."

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

We try our best to keep the BeOS spirit in Haiku. If BeOS source, its spirit, is cursed, we may have cursed Haiku too.

Maybe we should change our license for a more esoteric-aware open source license, where we will refute any responsabilities regarding whatever esoteric damage Haiku could cause if you use it, code for it, look at it or even just talk about it.
