The CherryOS emulator for running Mac OS X on a PC is to be released as open-source software, according to a note on the product’s website.
The project has been accused of stealing code from PearPC, an open-source PowerPC architecture emuator released last year. CherryOS developer Maui X-Stream has been accused of taking the PearPC code and repackaging it as commercial software.
Now, the CherryOS website now reads “Due to Overwhelming Demand. Cherry Open Source Project. Launches 5.1.2005.”
