Last week programmers were all abuzz when a Hawaiian company announced that they had developed software
, which they called Cherry OS
, that would allow people to run Mac software on PCs. But programmers were also very suspicious, especially since the company has been reluctant to release trial versions of the software. Now it looks like Cherry OS may not be all it was cracked up to be, at least according to this website
which claims that it's little more than a fraud. And in a similar vein, here's a story about a 12th grade Indian student who has supposedly developed a 32-bit operating system
, which he calls O-Yes, that is "far superior to any of the desktop operating systems in the market today"
and might emerge as a challenger to Windows. Hmmm. We'll have to wait and see if there's any truth to that claim, or whether O-Yes turns out to be more vaporware.
