The SoftPear Project aims to create compatibility software between the IBM PC and the Apple Macintosh architecture. This is not an emulator for PowerPC Macintosh machines (like “PearPC”, “Basilisk” or “UAE”), the project has more similarities to Digital’s “FX!32”, FreeBSD’s “Linux Binary Compatbility” and “WINE” instead. Darwin/x86 or GNU/Linux will run on the PC, and the Mac OS X user interface, its libraries and all applications running on top of it will run on Darwin or GNU/Linux, using SoftPear’s compatibility layer. Since today, the PowerPC to i386 recompiler works with many small test programs. The code is in the CVS.
