I'm going to be curious as to how well this works. Looking forward to seeing the reviews!

I have serious doubts too, but I would likely try a "trial" version, wouldn't you? It's worth a shot I think...?

if you want a trial go here www.pearpc.net . Its the exact same prog for free. These ******s lifted the code straight from the guys at pear pc that have worked their asses off with this project.

The speed claims are false anyways.

Why do u think they have to keep delaying the program? Because they keep finding remnance of pearpc code and don't want to get caught.

ANyone Else Agree with ME?

I think Cherry OS will be an optimized version of PearPC, but with lots of skin to hide any references to PearPC.

The CherryOS project has intrigued me since we first heard about it.

I don't believe for a second that everything they say is true, but equally they've gone to a hell of a lot of trouble to publicise it and make it look professional so, who knows? They'll release *something*... I'll be very interested to see what it is and, as you say russ0943, if it is a lift of PearPC.

I'm more interested in Guest PC since I don't need to simulate Mac OS X anyway.

Will it be possible to run CherryOS, in Virtual PC, on OS X? Just for no good reason and as a really uber-geeky experiment.

Running PearPC in Virtual PC on OS X "should" work, but will be even more slower.

You could but you would be better off installing Linux on your mac and running OSX through MOL.

there is good evidence to show that cherry is a ripoff of pear.

Does it matter to Mac users? Mac users are just very interested in running OS X on PCs. You do know that we didn't just buy a Mac for the OS right?

I'll just wait for the result.

I'm not interested anyway.... why the hell would I pay almost 50 bucks and even more for OSX just to see how it looks like?

Cherry OS (if it exists) = $49.99

OS X Panther = $129.00

Total = 178.99

Or 36% of the cost of a basic Mac mini....

It's hardly great economy if you want to try OS X, seeing as your total investment would be negated.
