JLG Denounces Zeta (update) – Purplus Follows Magnussoft

by @ Wednesday, April 11th, 2007. Filed under yellowTab

As posted on other sites, our ex-fearless leader has denounced yellowTab of ever holding any license for modification and distribution of Be Intellectual Property whilst JLG sat on the board of directors at PalmSource.
