In the Wired article they quote programmer Kryeziu as saying that the 36,000 lines of code making up CherryOS and was inspired by the well known open source PowerPC emulator PearPC but is in no way based on it where Kryeziu said (and this is my favorite part), "They are way slow." PearPC can idealy provide speeds 1/15th the speed of emulated hardware whereas CherryOS claims 80%.
Some claim this is vaporware. Others claim that the software is in fact based off of PearPC. Who is right? Keep an eye on The Mac Observer as they intend to get a hold of the software and test it out, reporting on the results. You can see their story on the announcement here.
