It is not exactly what i Said at all.

I said to run directly under Linux PPC Mac OS software without runing 
Mac OS, this project looks to be interesting but intends to run Mac OS 
softwares on x86 hardware, me what I spoke about is for PPC 
architecture. A kind of WineHQ PPC only Mac OS libs instead of Windows, 
so a bit softpear but to run directly on ppc hardware, so without any 
emulation. It is a melt of WineHQ, softpear and Mac On Linux.
