    technically, not just no, but hell no. It can't happen. It would be an emulator at best. The only reason it works in OS X is because it's UNIX based, like the iPod itself, they even run the same Kernel and largely the same OS. the simulator OS is the iPhone OS recompiled for Intel x86 architecture... I'm not sure how easily I can break this down, but it isn't just not ethical, it's not doable.

    Well, since it's UNIX, couldn't someone port it to Linux?

    Not necessarily. It would be far easier, but it's not the same kernel, and not the same thing. OS X is it's own breed. The iPhone runs OS X, just a modified and scaled version of it. Linux can't run Mac apps for many of the same reasons. This isn't gonna happen Veency is cool, but unless it's been updated since I used it the day it came out, it isn't smooth enough for me.
