Cherry OS Mac Emulator Released for PCs; Company Pleased With Speed


Cherry OS 1.0, a new Mac emulator that runs Mac OS X on a Windows-based PC, has been released by its developer in final form. Initial reports from users show problems, but many are reporting surprising performance.

Maui-X Stream, the Hawaii-based software developers of the Cherry OS, is currently offering a free copy of the emulator for evaluation, which has be downloaded 100,000 times since it was released on Tuesday, according to Jim Kartes, company president.

\"We're excited about the products release and excited that it's getting such an early interest,\" Mr. Kartes told The Mac Observer. \"There has been a lot of misinformation about this product since word first came out back in October of last year. Everything from skepticism it even existed to doubt it would ever be released. I think we have proven those skeptics wrong.\"

Cherry OS features support for CD/DVD, USB, FireWire and Ethernet. It automatically detects hardware and network connections and allows for the use of virtually any OS X-ready application. Those wishing to buy the entire product will pay US$49.95.

The product comes with an installer which requires both Cherry OS and OS X to be installed. The system requires a Pentium 4 1.6 gigahertz (GHz) CPU or equivalent, Windows XP operating system, 512 megabytes of memory, and 3 gigabytes of hard drive space. The product does not come with either Windows XP and OS X.

Mr. Kartes said what he's most proud about the products initial release is its performance at 80% of the speed of the host PC and the ability to work a large number of Windows-based machines.

\"We've been able to increase the speed so that it emulates a Power PC G4 and that's light years ahead of our competition,\" he commented.[/b]
