This isn't really true. it is POSSIBLE for you to run applications with
an X GUI on OSX, but it involves using an X server, and the
applications don't really look and feel like mac ones. The Macintosh
has it's own completely different UI library based on a lot of the Next

But a "quick and dirty" port to the mac could simply be a recompile of
linux code that used X. for example I run ddd all the time on my mac,
using lesstif. But it's not very "mac like" :-)
