Actually, I think it will be more like an extension to the new Apple
Virtual Machine they're toying with, the LLVM (
It is some sort of OpenSource Framework that can compile code to any
platform it has support from some bytecode. I don't have
a lot of knowledge of programming, but from a quick look it doesn't seem
to be similar to the .NET framework or Java, although
my description should indicate so.

Commentaries on Ars Technica review of the new OS 10.5 indicate that
there's been a lot of work recently on the ARM branch
of this program, and that Apple wants to push this project forward.
