A serious-looking (German Language) article examines a rather preposterous claim: that a group of young hackers has produced "the first operating system that allows problems to run programs from Windows, Mac, [iOS] and Linux with only one system." Their outlandish claims ("every known program runs under UNIOS without driver issues!") drew interest from the local press, then skepticism. I wasn't able to find much information in the English language. So stay tuned here at OSNews, which will no doubt be covering ongoing industry-changing UniOS news as it breaks. Or not.

Ubuntu + Mac OS X theme + WINE = profit.

Not even a Mac OS X theme. I haven't used KDE in a while, but this looks like vanilla KDE with a dock. The Windows parts are obviously running using WINE. The "Mac apps" also run through WINE. iTunes is the real iTunes for Windows. Finder and Photo Booth are rather bad copies of the real apps, with Photo Booth using Flash, of all things.

Looked to me more like KDE4's default theme (albeit with a dock instead of a taskbar) and VirtualBox in seamless mode.

Either way, it's pretty obvious that he didn't code a single line of that set up.
