Hi,

Given the way linux uses its GUI (X11 ontop on the kernel) - and the way Darwin can use this same structure.

Can we take OS X (Intel) binaries for Aqua and install them ontop of Darwin??

Just a though, for any know-it-all's out there.

You would need to install a whole load of stuff such as the carbon/cocoa frameworks, quartz stuff etc. Even if you could do it - you'd just end up with a copy of Mac OS anyway!!

Actucally you would need to build the kernel from scratch using a mac os build switch insted of a darwin one
