ZDNet posted a story that a project is aiming to build a Wine-like compatibility layer for Linux operating systems that would allow them to run OS X applications.

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.

So far the project has a small number of OS X programs working with Darling and is testing various other applications, such as Midnight Commander, QREncoder, Bayon, The Unarchiver and World of Warcraft. Which apps could or couldn't be run on the Darling layer isn't yet clear.
