They're both OSes: This is like asking if there's Windows XP for Linux. . .

If you mean "Can I run OS X on a Linux PC" - then No.

If you mean "Can I run Linux on a Mac" - then Yes, with some work.

If you mean can you simulate an OS X desktop on a Linux PC - then Yes, you can do a fairly good imitation.

If you meant something else, you'll have to clarify the question..

If English is your second language, then at least try to separate your sentences---and get a dictionary with real words--not bar slang like "dunno".
As already noted, the substance of your question does not make sense.

3(b) If English is your second language ignore pedantic responses and remember that "---" and "--" are not generally recognised grammatical structures.

As oneandoneis2 helpfully pointed out, it is entirely possible to configure a Linux desktop environment to closely resemble OS X, google and the search function will provide a lot of information.

Are your 14yr old? Do you use AOL? If not then type properly or all you're going to get here is a bunch of smart assed comments. You can't call people stupid either, takes some skill to pull that off without getting done.

Mainly for the benefit of others but it could be useful to the OP, there is Mac-on-Linux which can be run on linux/ppc and allows you to run linux and OS X in parallel.
