  • WINE runs Microsoft Windows programs on various Unix-like operating systems running on x86 machines
  • LINE[?] runs x86 Linux programs on Microsoft Windows
  • iBCS[?] (Intel Binary Compatibility Standard) allows a number of x86 Unix operating systems to run a common binary format
  • FreeBSD and other BSD Unixes have system call translation allowing them to run Linux binaries compiled for the same platform
  • SCO UNIX has a similar "Linux kernel personality"
  • vmWare[?] runs an entire operating system inside another
