I think it's a great idea. BTW, I asked Avi Tevanian why they didn't go with Linux instead of using their own flavor of Unix. Didn't get a satisfactory answer. But I'd be very happy to have QuickDraw and all the Mac managers working on Linux.

Also, I'm learning that WINE is not really an emulator, that it converts the apps to native code, so they run reasonably fast. Is this correct?
