Posted by:Jon on Wednesday, 21 Apr, 2004 @ 12:12 PM

Axel Dorfler announced today on the OpenBeOS mailing list that OpenBeOS can now be booted off a partition instead of just a floppy disk. The kernel itself does not support hard drive access just yet, meaning shortly after booting the kernel will panic. A short description of how to test if the kernel will boot on your system can be found at freelists.org along with the rest of the post.

According to a report at Zetajournal, YellowTab may be illegally distributing Gobe Productive 2.0 office suite. Though there is no official statement by either company at this point, some YellowTab customers have been contacted via e-mail by Gobe Productive CEO Kevin Gilbertson.

YellowTab has posted new screenshots of Zeta on yellowtab.com. IsComputerOn also reported today that YellowTab is inteding to attend BeGeistert 12 this spring.
