Zeta "The biggest thing they have done is to add more drivers and update the look in order to bring BeOS to users who could not have installed it before and attract new users to discover what made it great. This is a good thing, but I just can't get behind this OS as of yet. There are too many problems and rough patches. If you want the best way to use BeOS, this is it. If you are looking for the best desktop OS, I cannot recommend Zeta."

It may have it's flaws (like the audio output thru my the wrong port on my mobo). But it's the only decent desktop alternative for x86 PC users until x86 Mac OSX comes along.

So True. I don't see Linux becoming a decent desktop OS for a long time.

Which will not happen, or at least is not part of Apple's current plan.

When will people understand that Apple using Intel CPUs does not mean that OS X will run on commodity hardware?
Apple switching to x86 processors doesn't change a thing - it's still a closed hardware platform. Sigh.
