Something like "write-once, run anywhere" for Linux applications

It is a platform named Lina which will enable you to run any Linux application on any platform…be it Linux, Windows or Mac.

 

The concept recalls Java, which has long promised “write once, run anywhere” compatibility. As with Java, Lina users will first install a VM specific to their platform, after which they can run binaries compiled not for their particular OS, but for the VM, which aims to hide OS-specific characteristics from the application.

Are you smelling words like Free and cost-cutting or umm, Anti-Piracy?
