    Phoronix: A New Project To Run Mac OS X Binaries On Linux

    While there is the Wine project to run native Windows binaries on Linux (and other platforms), there's a new open-source project that's emerging for running Apple OS X binaries on Linux in a seamless manner...

    Sorry to bring back something already mentioned before, but LugosD, have you ever had a look on cocotron?
    - http://www.cocotron.org/

    Just curious.

    I've never tried it, having only run stuff on jailbroken ithings.

    Cool. I thought that it was very likely you were aware of ringo, but i thought i would mention it, just in case

    Did you happen to take a look at 'ringo' at all? http://gitorious.org/ringo

    ...which was a codebase that briefly appeared (with the aim of running Mac apps on linux) and was worked on, but hasn't seen any recent activity. It does look though, glancing at the commit log, that the developer did get at least _some_ code working/running; http://gitorious.org/ringo/ringo/commits/master

    I'm not sure how relevant and/or applicable any of their code may be for your purpose, but you never know, it may be worth a look.

    at any rate - your project certainly looks interesting and i've had a few looks at the darling website - so here is hoping you can get some useful working code, while also gaining some traction and interest from other developers/contributors!

    There was a game developer recently-ish (I forget who they were...) who said they had used GNUstep to develop their racer. Like you, they commented that they found many bugs in the framework -- but also that they had fixed a large number and were subsequently able to use it quite happily for their work. It would be great if GNUstep were able to achieve some maturity.
    Yeah, that's what I intend to do now, but reporting bugs without the source code is slightly complicated when you always have to rule out a bug on your part That being said, the GNUstep guys have been very helpful and cooperative.
