Zeta Even though I ordered Zeta from an official US reseller store, the product box I received was in the German language (at least part of it was). I recognized the company name, yellowTAB, and the name of the operating system, Zeta. But all other information printed on the box, including the system requirements, were printed in German.

I'm getting a new boxen, and I hope to run Zeta. I'm writing this from the last one I built, for BeOS Pro 5. But if Zeta is to succeed, it needs to match my PC, and not the other way around.

I don't donate money to companies. Sorry, yT.


What the hell is wrong with ELQ?

you're so lucky to have your own cow to grab your milk,
your own chemist who build your own medics, and of course your own internet company because you are not going to give them money in exchange of a service like letting you use their bandwith to send a post about the fact you don't donate money. Yes, sure.

Okay, say it with me now: "commerce is not charity."

You appear to have confused the difference between a "payment" and a "donation." Which is funny, because your own post differentiates between donating and exhcanging money for goods or services.

To use one of your similitudes, do you give money to pharmaceutical companies who make medications that have no effect on you? Probably not. Which was the point that Sandwich Boy was making - that he would like to buy ZETA to use it, but if it won't run on his computer, then he's not interested in buying it merely to subsidize development.
