iSH offers a Linux environment on iOS using a usermode x86 32bits emulator. It is not Linux, but does enough syscalls translation and x86 emulation to get a Alpine Linux environment running on iOS. Given all the restrictions this app has to face on iOS where no such things like an hypervisor, JIT, fork, exec are possible, the author did an almost impossible job just to get this working.
Here are some personal notes on getting a C/C++ programming environment on iOS (using iSH) read more... C
I have shared a different story about legacy on medium/@talkdesk:
We all have seen software being marked as obsolete and named legacy. A messy thing that no fellow Engineer would like to touch, a cost in time and sanity to keep up with something that we would rather throw away and start all over. But even the new, one day, sooner rather than later, will become legacy. These are bad news but also good news, in a way what you are doing now is the legacy yet to come. So you can take action now and prepare.
It’s like falling in love again and then again.. I am silent at night waiting for her gentle breath and still bemused at day how incredible she is and thankful to be part of her life.

And that’s all. Have a great 2015! project
