Zeta I've always been a huge fan of BeOS. However, there was no denying the fact that the BeOS was getting old. As many other BeOS fans, I closely followed two projects: Haiku, and yellowTAB's Zeta. The latter released 1.0 a few weeks ago. Here are the findings of an old BeOS user.

>You say:
"Booting is a matter of, say, 15 seconds, completely blowing away any Linux, Windows or OS X install."

While it might be faster than the mentioned operating systems, I can boot my linux system into kde in 20 seconds.
And my windows xp takes about 20 to 25 seconds to boot.

So I would not have used the words "blowing away" ;)

You got a point, however, who's to say that booting Zeta would take 15 seconds on your machine? Maybe it takes less? We can only know for sure when someone posts the boot times for the different OSes on the same hardware.

Booting XP on my machine takes roughly 30 seconds. And yes, I find cutting boottime in half "blowing away" ;) .
