OSNews, Generic OSes When I read this item in the backend submission queue, I must admit that I thought it was a fake, and I must say that I'm still not confident enough about this one. A Korean company held a press event today during which it launched its Tmax Window operating system. Built on in-house technology, they claim it has 100% compatibility with Windows software. Update: A lot more information in this article.

I think we are a little too fast and too early to pass judgement on this. Let's see what kind of product they will finally rollout. The truth will reveal itself. Remember the David software which is supposed to have Windows compatibility layer ?

If this OS can run 80% of Windows software I would consider it a success. After all for the exloding Netbook market, you do not need much. With Vista tanking on Netbook and MS Windows 7 uncertain future

Even if TMax Windows can't run the all the Windows apps, you can always run it off a terminal server such as ThinServer
