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.

if you use this, it gives you a simple shell really fast:

lilo: linux rw init=/bin/bash

*Don't*.
If your distro uses an initrd image or your kernel doesn't have all the required driver compiled into the binary image, at best you'll have an empty OS under your hands.
sysinit is there for a reason.
Even init 1 may cause grief on some distros.
