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.

So you've been to Georgia. ;) (Kidding, of course; I met my lovely wife on the other side of Atlanta.)

I'm not so concerned with the name as I am with the feasibility of the project, but it's nice to think about. And the ultimate irony would be to run GNU/Linux or Darwin on Mac hardware, which then would use Darling to run OS X apps, without the Aqua GUI.
