No, Xcode cannot be run natively on Linux as it is an integrated development environment (IDE) that is exclusive to Apple's macOS operating system. Xcode provides a suite of software development tools and resources that are specifically designed for developing apps for Apple's ecosystem of operating systems, including macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

However, you can still develop software for Apple's ecosystem on Linux by using alternative development tools and resources such as Swift and Objective-C compilers, which are available for Linux, and cross-platform frameworks like Flutter, React Native, or Xamarin. While these alternatives may not offer the same level of integration and feature set as Xcode, they can provide a viable solution for cross-platform app development.

Since it's closed-source software, we cannot simply run the Xcode app on Linux. However, the open-source movement is strong in the whole Unix world, shared by both macOS and Linux. So, it's unsurprising that the low-level tools and libraries used to build Xcode are open source.
