The Linux ABI is a patch to the Linux kernel that allows a linux system to run foreign binaries. It was developed as a follow-on to the iBCS/iBCS2 project for the older 2.2 kernel. It supports binaries from SCO OpenServer, SCO OpenDesktop, SCO Unix 3.x, SCO Xenix 386, SCO Xenix 286 (with userspace x286 emulation), SCO UnixWare 7, Caldera OpenUnix 8, SUN Solaris 2, System V Release 3 (SVR3), System V Release 4 (SVR4), Wyse V/386, and ISC Interactive Unix. Only the Intel i386 platform is currently supported
Virtual X68000 is a virtual machine that emulates a Sharp X68000 and optionally its DOS API. It will eventually run application programs for X68000 without any proprietary software including ROM BIOS, but currently lacks many key functions and is still in early development phase. Virtual X68000 is written in C++, and uses templates to implement instruction handlers.
Wine is an implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. It does not require Microsoft Windows, but can use native Windows DLLs if they are available. It provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes.
tkscript is a JIT-accelerated C-like scripting language with bindings for OpenGL, SDL, SDL_net, libpng, and zlib. A plugin SDK can be used to dynamically extend the script engine with custom C functions and C++ classes. It can be used to create portable, 3D, OpenGL-accelerated multimedia applications.
