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.

,,A short boot time is very important for laptop users.''

Hibertnation. Suspend mode.

,,Because I sometimes need to make a quick note, and I mean quick, I have installed DOS''

Wha?! Maybe you want a pice of stone and something pointy? You could just add a instant-Linux based on initrd or a microLiveCD/USB. Installing DOS in 2005? To get quick note? I have no words.

,,I recommend OS developers to offer some kind of console which must by ready''

You've ever heard about init 1?

No. I need full startup to detect network settings and so on. You know, I have a laptop to take it to different networks.

> a instant-Linux based on initrd or a microLiveCD/USB

way slow compared to DOS on a harddisk.

> init 1

hmm, yes but forgot about that one. thanks for reminding :-)

Well, on Linux all you need is hibernation and a icon pointing to "service network restart". That's going tp take all of 2 seconds+ whatever your DHCP takes.
