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.

Since it doesn't have the dominance of Microsoft Office, does iWork have any particular advantage over just running Open Office or Libre Office on Linux?

Imho,
I've seen a few complaints about Pages from various word processing people. Gets the job done for me, but I'm no secretary. Never used Numbers heavily, so can't really comment on how it compares to Excel. Keynote is totally worth it, though.
