and no, it's not a Mac  Tongue  can there be anything such as an unhackable OS? barring a system that is completely self contained with no traffic in and out, of course.

should we start preparing to welcome our Chinese Cyber Overlords?

It doesn't seem like a smart idea to announce your OS as "unhackable". That's just going to motivate the world's hackers.  icon_twisted

Despite the articles saying it is new and not Windows, Unix, or Linux... if you look around on the web it is actually basically a modified version of FreeBSD.

Of course there'll be a few backdoors in it to enable the chinese to make sure their OS is being used "correctly".

Nothing is unhackable. And yeah, from what I heard it is just a modified unix OS.

Which, despite CeeKay's statement in the OP, makes Kyril a cousin of Darwin, the operating system core of Mac OS X. smile

US and other "good guys" countries can't create 'unhackable OS', but China can because if the 'unhackable OS' is hackable then the designers/programmers will be executed.

I personally have a hard time believing that an OS can be “unhackable”, but the Chinese government is known for its honesty.  They wouldn’t lie so it must be true.

Well, the US Air Force almost does.  WindowsXP to the rescue!
