I wouldn't say Darling is damaging to the Linux ecosystem either. Most people who hate linux are the people who switched because of compiz and wine. When you're using linux as a free and fancy alternative to windows, you're gonna have a bad time. Think of it like this - people who switch to linux because of the "illusion that it will run OSX programs" likely would not have ever switched to linux for any other reason. If Darling happens to fail at everything the user expects to do, linux doesn't gain or lose anything. It might get some additional flak, but it'd be flak that would be going to other people who had no intention to switch either. So really, Darling doesn't hurt the linux ecosystem at all.
No announcement yet.
