OSNews, Generic OSes So, I've been sitting on this one for a few days now, since I decided to let the sensationalist headlines pass by before I took a stab at it. Developer Christina B. has started - and released code for - an amazingly intriguing project: implementing Darwin/BSD on top of the Linux kernel. Just to make this absolutely clear: it's not her intention to allow iOS applications to run on this new, hybrid system. Let me reiterate: it's not her intention to allow iOS applications to run on this new, hybrid system. This, however, does not make this project any less interesting.

So what would you think about this guy: http://dabeaz.blogspot.com/2011/01/porting-py65-and-my-superboard-t... ? Emulator of 30 years old machine, "modem" for connecting sound card and Superboard, storing instances of Superboard (essentially MS Basic) on the net.

Sometimes people has useless ideas. But if they are porting several Python2 modules to Python3 in the process, let them have it. THEY ARE AWESOME. I'll bet that ios project will provide at least some patches for the Linux kernel.
