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.

Zeta should go multiuser in version 1.5 (their next update release).

There will be some updates, newer drivers and improvements to the OS. Yellowtab is mainly concerned with improving the OS, other software will have to be created by sofware developers.

People, don't expect Zeta to be fantastic overnight. BeOS stopped back in late 2001. Yellowtab didn't start Zeta till late 2004(?) - something like that.

It will take a bit of time before Yellowtab gets going on it and catches up with other OSes, like Linux & Windows. But it will be rewarding for those who can hold out for later versions.

It is too early for Yellowtab to have done lots of major changes to the original BeOS, but I can see these coming in the next 1-2 years. (ie: Zeta will be made up of more Yellowtab & Haiku code and less or no BeOS code).

People should realize that this is just Zeta Version 1.x (ie: don't expect too much from the current version of Zeta) - it won't be until Version 2.x (or 3.x) when Zeta OS will get noticed and really shine.

Well that's what bothers me. R5 was already very mature, how come Zeta isn't? It's much more a work in progress, my guess is that it's because of Zeta being based on Dan0.
