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.

If I could get Panic's wonderful binary newreader Unison to run on Linux, I'd probably have to offer up my first born son in recompense*.

I fully agree, Unison is the best news reader I have ever used. I love Unison and I love Transmit which I purchased as well. Panic is an awesome company!
