Linux From ZDnet:

Fancy running iWork on Linux? It may one day be possible courtesy of a project to get Apple OS X programs running on Linux-based operating systems.

Similar to how Wine allows Windows applications to run in Linux OS, the Darling project is trying to build a software compatibility layer to run OS X apps.

I obviously doubt the attainability of the project's goals, but this will be a fantastic coding experience for the programmers involved.

How long will it take before cease and desist letters are sent out from Apple? Trolls.


The Black Gate of Cupertino swung open. The lights went out, my skin crawled, and dogs began to howl. I asked my neighbor what it was and he said, "Those are the nazgul. Once they were human, now they are Apple's lawyers."
