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.

I used to think that way. I have a lot more of respect for the guy as a programmer since I read this Joel Spolsky's little story:

To be honest I was expecting something more impressive than that. That link doesn't really boast about Bill's history as a programmer.

I know the guy is intelligent and understands technology exceedingly well. I also know (and did even highlight this) that he used to get his hands dirty with code, however that doesn't mean that he was one of the key developers for any of their flagship products, let alone an OS developer. Which is why I raised the point about other OS "developers" being compared against him.

I do have a lot of respect for Bill. I may not like many of his business decisions nor personally a fan of Windows, but I've always had a great deal of respect for him because he had vision and was exceedingly good at what he did.
