MXS Inc. announces CherryOS 1.0

Update (19 Oct 2004): It seems the press information given by this company is now under scrutiny by the public. It's believed the CherryOS can be a repackaged version of Pear PC, a a free, open-source Mac emulator released earlier this year, according to this story by Wired.




Development company MXS has announced the CherryOS, a software translator that allows users to install Apple's Operating System on the x86 computer architecture. According to MXS, Apple's Panther OS can now be run on a PC, giving home users, software developers and web designers flexibility in both the operating system and hardware platform they use for their personal computer or testing environment.

CherryOS runs Panther as a virtual machine on a Windows PC. This virtual machine has full network capabilities including the ability to share folders and access the web. It also has complete access to the computer's hardware resources including, Hard Drive, CPU, RAM, Firewire, USB, PCI, PCMIA BUS and RJ45/Ethernet and Modem.

Software developer, Arben Kryeziu, who invented CherryOS, states that about 600 million PC users can now have one computer to use all software. According to Arben, if PC users would use Mac software to get email, perhaps they would avoid viruses, Trojans and spyware. He said that users can build and test applications for a Mac on their development PC, test web site design for Mac web browsers without having to buy the hardware, run OS X on a less expensive hardware platform and use their favorite Mac apps on a PC.

CherryOS is now only available online as a download for $US49.95 (Mac software not included).
