open source linux projects like this take so long it's not funny, look at how long qt5 took and still many platforms are not fully integrating it as many apps are still based off older qt libs. I do not really see this taking off, even wine under linux ain't the greatest. If you want to run the apps with power, stability and ease just run them on the the real platform or vm platform.

So this will never really happen will it? My main reason for running OSX is for music production.. If Linux could run the same programs I wouldn't have considered hackintosh, but that's why I started and I'm very happy I did :D

Mac OS X runs far better in all my hackintoshes than linux in the same hardware... More battery life, cooler temperature.. Great Performance.. I have no complaints

There is a blog post on feb 6 discussing recent events

It's a lot of hard work, takes a long time, and needs developers.
