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.

For those not able to read German:

It's a Ubuntu and KDE-based operating system. The interviewer couldn't see any wine processes (but they might have been hidden) but it does not really run OSX applications: The Photobooth that was shown is a Flash-based lookalike.

The whole thing is a scam.

You could not see the Wine process because it is not Wine. He uses WinXP(Look at the screenshots, it is obvious) Additionally he installed a mac like toolbar, a flash copy of a mac tool, kde for windows and "andlinux"(you can see the exe on one of the sceenshots) as a desktop replacement he uses the plasma desktop(you can see that in the autostart screenshot)

So in the end it is a fake.
