Do you like Wine? You may like this Darling ;-)

wine_compFirst of all, we are not talking about the bottled beverage which is famous around the world but we are talking about the famous Linux software Wine which runs windows applications on Linux, FreeBSD and OS-X. Following the footsteps of Wine a new project has started –¬†Darling, which is trying to emulate the layer for OS-X applications. Though almost all the OS-X applications have an alternative on Linux, some users just want to use the platform native apps as they are comfortable with those.

Basic execution is similar to wine though the project also aims to provide ABI compatible set of libraries and frameworks as available in OS-X. Right now the project is at a very initial stage.
