OS X Window System

OS X for Linux X Window System
  [vote for,

Port the OS X GUI (Aqua only, mind you) to Linux as an X11 client. Include an emulator so Linux can run Mac apps.

(I would pay Steve Jobs money for a package like this.)

Run tiger from your own Intel PC [ixnaum, Aug 26 2005]


       Rods, could you run Lindows on your iBook then?

       Yet another set of annos' where I need Babelfish.

       Question for [Rods]: just because *you* won't use it, why would you vote against it?
galukalock, Jan 29 2003

       But wouldn't you like to be able to run iTunes or some other such legendarily easy-to-use program on your Linux PC?   

       Besides, the emulator is NOT the main part of the idea; the idea is to port the GUI of OS X to Linux.

       Just what Linux needs, another competing GUI.

       Sounds good to me.

       Hm, what do I yell when my whole Bingo card is covered?

       If the scenario you described happens soon, I'd probably buy it. (Unless it's open-source.)
galukalock, Feb 01 2003

       I sure hope that if it ever happens, it's open-source!
BuckWilliams, Apr 02 2003

       That's what I meant. If it was open-source, it'd be better, and free.
galukalock, Apr 02 2003

       This is more of a request :-)   

       But ya it would be nice. Although you can do a variation of you are saying - today. Now you don't need a Mac to run Mac OS X. See the Mac OS X for Intel link.
