From /.:
"A maintainer of GNUstep has launched a Kickstarter campaign to get the resources needed to make GNUstep more complete and bring the implementation to API compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6's Cocoa. This will allow applications for Mac OS X to run on GNU/Linux with a simple recompile using new tools developed by the GNUstep team to directly build from xcodeproj project files. If the Kickstarter project is funded beyond its $50,000 goal, it's possible that WebKit and Darling might also be completed allowing applications built on Mac OS X to run without the need for a recompile... think WINE-like functionality for Mac OS X applications on other platforms... including Windows, Linux, BSD, etc."

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ I imagine that they're trying to get it to function without X11, and through Cocoa. I *doubt* that the APIs use the same functions, performs in the same fashion. ign-launched ion ing

=============================================================== From: "Robert A. Kelly III" ------------------------------------------------------ I have thought for a long time that it seemed like it would be much easier to implement something like Wine for OS X, and often wondered why no one had done it. This could be pretty interesting to see.
