Much excitement heralds the sudden arrival on the scene of Cherry OS, a Mac emulation system for Windows machines.
Unfortunately (but hardly unexpectedly), the Cherry OS site is being somewhat slow right now. A lot of people want to know what the fuss is all about.
It’s even more unfortunate that, instead of offer up a simple one-page briefing comprising text and perhaps a single screenshot, the Cherry OS folks are offering bandwidth-hungry movies (contained within Java applets) as the only official source of information.
After watching an applet telling me it was “Buffering…” for longer than I cared to count, I decided to look for information elsewhere. Thankfully, a story at Apple-X.net has a lot more detail, and some (mostly unofficial) screenshots. The creators of Cherry OS maintain that it offers reasonable performance, and is not connected in any way to the PearPC emulation project.
Until the fuss dies down a bit, and the official Cherry OS site is usable once more, those of us wanting to test it for ourselves will just have to sit tight and wait.
Did you manage to download and try out Cherry OS before the fuss started up?
