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.

english.etnews.co.kr describes the event in more detail, saying they were running Office 2003 (with some lag in typing), IE (with minor glitches) and StarCraft (with some instability).

Looks to be using regular Windows drivers, too, instead of rolling their own.

Though there is no lagging with Wine for Office 2003 and Strarcraft works without any instability issues.
IE is a glitch itself.
