Here's something interesting from Slashdot today:

http://apple.slashdot.org/story/12/12/0 ... s-on-linux

"After having Wine to run Windows binaries on Linux, there is now the Darling Project that allows users to run unmodified Apple OS X binaries on Linux. The project builds upon GNUstep and has built the various frameworks/libraries to be binary compatible with OSX/Darwin. The project is still being worked on as part of an academic thesis but is already running basic OS X programs."

Interesting.

I'm assuming they REALLY meant Intel-OSX binaries on an Intel-Linux host. I wish they made that distinction/clarification....... because what I was *really* hoping for was to run OSX/PPC binaries on a Linux/PPC host.

I haven't gotten it working in Ubuntu 13.10 vm in VirtualBox. Seems GNUstep fails at finding a working backend at compile time. GNUstep also fails to compile in Ubuntu 12.04 (in dual-boot with WinXP) for same reason.Will try again when Ubuntu 14.04 comes out.

I'd recommend running it on an OS from 2012 -- a Debian would be best.

Also, I'd suggest only running pre-2012 binaries on it, as more recent software likely won't run due to API and ABI changes in 10.8/10.9. If someone is keeping the project up to date though, these issues may be overcome :)
