Too good to be true?

Transitive Corp of California, claims its QuickTransit software allows applications to run “transparently” on multiple hardware platforms, including Macs, PCs, and numerous servers and mainframes.

Transitive said QuickTransit supports software written in any programming language, and that its modular architecture allows modules to be swapped in and out depending on the processor and operating system.

The company claimed QuickTransit eliminates the need to port software from one platform to another. Software applications written for one platform will run on almost any other, without any modifications to the underlying program.

This would allow, for instance, MS Exchange or SQL Server to be installed on a Linux server!

Theoretically it should allow Apple’s cool OS X software to run on PCs!
