So, if you haven’t spotted it on IsComputerOn or BeOS News, Bernd has officially closed of the Second era of BeOS commercialism (Be, Inc., and BeOS, being the obvious first) - Zeta is no more. Bernd’s post sounds like it was harder to write than my own closing at beunited, and I’m sad to see all his hard efforts seemingly all for not. Bernd is checking the legal ability to release some of the source code to the community, to help preserve the advances made there.

BeGroovy wishes Bernd, and all of the remaining developers of Zeta, best wishes and good luck on any future endeavours.

UPDATE: Well, as if to pop a couple of caps in the dying carcass… Access has publicly stated that they have no knowledge of any license by yellowTab to modify the source of BeOS or any for distribution of said OS, and that Bernd/yellowTab, despite cease and desist orders, has yet to provide proof of such license.  Adding to the heat, Magnussoft has announced the cease of distribution of Zeta 1.21.  Talk about the flame wars on OS News.
