Comparing Cherries to Pears

Read a blog post today about the product CherryOS, which is essentially a Mac OS X emulator for Windows. It turns out that CherryOS stole most of their code from PearPC, and are categorically denying it.

How stupid do you have to be to rip off someone else's software? I mean really, in this day and age when people will sue at the drop of the hat for ridiculously stupid things, this company's really gotta have its head in the ground if they believe that just because it's open source means that they're not going to get sued. Sure, the people running PearPC may not have the time or resources to start a lawsuit, but it's just a matter of time before someone does on their behalf.

Incredible the idiocy of some people.
