Arben Says: I Can Tell A Lie; I Chopped Down That Cherry Tree

...

"I cannot tell a lie ... I did chop down that cherry tree.
~ George Washington




As reported by Engadget:

First they put it on on hold last month, then they announced they were going to relaunch it as an open source project, now the genius guy behind CherryOS,that OS X emulator which apparently borrowed some code from an earlier emulator by the name of PearPC, has decided to pull the plug on the entire ill-fated venture. Arben Kryeziu says that it simply was not ready; which we believe is a euphemism for I didn't feel like getting sued by the people behind PearPC


Readers also might want to check out Arben's BLOG - it may remind you of other stories from Jackwhispers.

I find it kind of ironic that, in his Blog, Kryeziu, refers to the Cherry OS as C-OS - I can think of other meanings for that abbreviation. Titles such as Con Man's OS and CopyCat OS and Contained PearPC Code OS come to mind
