“A free trial of the controversial CherryOS Mac emulator will be available for download Nov. 25, according to a statement on Maui X-Stream’s website. ‘As a direct result of the overwhelming response to our Oct. 12 announcement, and in order to provide current and future customers with the timely service and attention such high-volume demand requires, MXS has chosen to extend the beta development for CherryOS,’ the site says,” Leander Kahney reports for Wired News.
“It continues: ‘MXS will provide a free trial download of the CherryOS software, in addition to the purchase download on Nov. 25, 2004.’ According to Maui X-Stream, CherryOS will allow Mac OS X to run on Windows XP machines with unprecedented ease and speed. But the software has been shrouded in controversy: Many believe it is a rip-off of PearPC, an open-source Mac emulator that isn’t particularly fast or easy to use,” Kahney reports.
“Kryeziu said he will be vindicated Nov. 25. ‘We would have just walked away if everything they say about us is true, if it is a scam,’ he said. ‘We’re going to release a product, but we’ve set the date back right now.’ He added, ‘On the 25th it’s going to live up to its promise,'” Kahney reports.
