Run MacOS X applications under Linux


Is there any way to run MacOS X applications under Linux without emulation?

If not what is the problem to make Linux kernel to support Mach-O binaries?

That's great but I am asking about running MacOS X applications without emulation (running directly by the Linux kernel).

I am unaware of a binary compatibility layer. I could imagine a compatibility layer for darwin system calls - I think the BSDs have such a system for running Linux binaries. However, OSX apps are using the Cocoa framework, and a whole bunch of other Apple proprietary stuff. Maybe there is a wine-like project to implement this stuff, but I don't know about it.
