Is there any particular reason that prevents the possibility of creating software like WINE to run Osx soft on GNU/Linux ?

What led to the creation of wine, excluding games, was the lack of some professional software in Linux.

"Now" after that Mac moved to x86 it will be much easier to create a layer to run Osx software on Linux than the opposite ... so why doesn't this exist?

Considering the difficulty of running the most recent versions of OSX in VMWare or VirtualBox, I would imagine emulating it would be a whole lot harder. – Thracky Oct 10 '12 at 18:42
