Zeta "Zeta includes quite a lot of open source software. YellowTAB was able to include software like bash, GCC, VLC, to name just a few, with Zeta and thus profit from the work of many thousands of developers. However, programs do not always work straight away when compiled for Zeta and may require changes to do so. We make the necessary changes and fix bugs to make sure that these programs run smoothly on Zeta. Now it's time to give something back."

Well, I for one don't know you as a particularly "anti-yellowTAB" person. I agree that this gesture from yT deserves recognition.

Generally speaking, I think it's great to have a company like yT, with all it's faults and weaknesses, still backing BeOS. The alternative (no yT) would be much worse.

BTW, I am glad you're still around the 'ol BeOS community. Makes me feel good to still be a BeOS user, knowing this small bunch has people like yourself in it.
