The Wine project has been created to emulate 
Windows to be able to run windows softwares directly under Linux 
without to have to emulate Windows.
It's very great and wonderful idea !

The Darwine project aims to to the same 
but under Mac OS X with adding also the emulation of an x86 CPU.

But, I wanted to know something, or even to make a proposal.
Would it be possible to make a special Wine version for Linux PPC that 
instead of emulating Windows would emulate Mac OS ?
Yes there's already the very great Mac On Linux PPC (MOL) that can let run Mac OS applications, but 
you have to run Mac OS in parallel ... It is great, but Mac OS takes 
rooms and CPU and for some usages, maybe it is not completely useful. 
Would it be possible to make such a software a WinePPC for exemple that 
would let run Microsoft Office X 2004 Mac or Adobe CS Mac or Macromedia 
MX Mac directly under Linux PPC without having to install a Mac OS ?

To make simple to run Mac OS softwares directly under the Linux desktop
