Good news; the CherryOS folks are the worst kind of pirates. What really sucks it that they were so underhanded about it. PearPC is, afterall, open source. All CherryOS had to do was be upfront about the code base they were using and make the source code enhancements they produced freely available. Instead, they purposely mislead everyone into believing they had a pure code base of their own. Off with their heads (figuratively, of course)!!

I agree...I would like to see CherryOS and Maui-X software wiped off the face of the earth (just the product and the company, not the people! ;)). I hope the PearPC guys can successfully sue those bastards.

Seems like they've gone open source!

Linkety to CherryOS's site.

Maybe this will clear things up... or something.
