Do you mean to try to run Mac binaries on Linux?
If so, that is the domain of an emulator. One that is trying to
emulate a proprietary platform which is the property of a very large,
wealthy, litigious company. That is unreasonable and unrealistic IMHO.
Outlandish is your term, not mine.
When this is brought up, I always interject :-)
http://www.darlinghq.org. Already runs many binaries, also Apple's
toolchain (with the notable exception of xcodebuild, which depends on
half of the operating system), soon should be able to fully host a
Jenkins/TC build slave. It can mount DMG images, install PKGs and it
provides a more or less complete OS X shell environment.
As far as the relationship between Darling and GNUstep is concerned,
Darling builds on GNUstep's Foundation (with tighter CF integration),
extends on GNUstep's CoreFoundation and develops its own AppKit (for
various technical reasons, over which I don't want to do flamewars here).
Given how far I got with my one man show, it is for sure not
unrealistic. In a way, GNUstep is currently a ~3 man show, given that I
see only ca. 3 truly active committers.
And I don't know what could Apple sue me over.
P.S.: Darling's AppKit is already more advanced than the nothing that
can be seen in Git (in some NIB compatibility areas, it is already more
advanced than GNUstep). But I won't do any commits for a long time,
because people are very impatient and I don't want to receive 5 mails
per day saying "hey, your AppKit sucks, hey this commit breaks build" etc.
