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.

Perhaps he had some help from his dad, our old friend Bernard or ZetaMan. Whatever happened to him anyway?

Bernd Korz was working with the Zubuntu / ZevenOS team for a while when the goal was to run the BeOS App Server on Linux. He no longer has ties to that project. There was talk at the last Be Geistert that Yellow Tab was making some sort of comeback but I have yet to hear anything since then.

It's pretty hilarious that his son is following in his sheister footsteps. The first demo video in that article could not have been more obvious. The first thing you see is a freaking Andlinux KDE istaller, followed by "Photo Booth" with the Flash camera access dialog. Worst. Hoax. Ever.

Also, when is someone going to follow up on Window 9, that Korean Windows clone? They did a big press demo ages ago and then nothing.

Of course I was only jesting about the father son thing, but they do make a good match anyway.

Was a bit surprised to see the Korz interview though, not that I understand the chatter.

I always thought that running the BeOS/Haiku appserver on either Linux or Windows was a fair enough idea for an interim project, but moot now.

I did write an article about that for OS News but it was never published ;)

Oh my god, seriously? It's Bernd's son? That's so awesome it hurts. The Apple truly does not fall far from the tree.
