Eugenia sent us a head’s up to a new editorial online at OSNews about Zeta. A “Top Ten” reasons sort of thing. I personally will be buying it 1) to support yellowTab’s efforts, 2) to update my system, and 3) because BeOS remains my most oft booted OS. My favorite quote from the article:

PalmSource has absolutely 0% interest in BeOS. Their “execs don’t even remember they actually own the Be IP” someone in the know told me once.

Knowing how they were when beunited.org tried to get a license, I find it quite fortunate that yellowTab was able to license the code at all and save the OS for the community. Support them! Besides, it’ll be a while before we have an open source offering - and I know you all need an updated OS out there! (Aside the fact that yellowTab has plans to incorporate OSS solutions into Zeta, so it becomes a distro of sorts as time goes on anyways).
