Dont believe everything you read on the internet. It aint gonna happen, kid.

Anyway there is a emulator for the 68k chip but none for the PPC thus there is no useful emulator for the Mac OS on PCs.

Need a reason to switch from PCs to Macs? ***********.AmbrosiaSW.com/games/evn/

dont believe everything you read, but dont discount out of hand either. :P

yes there is, well kind of - its called project darwin which is the unix shell from osx. the *nix community is jumping on it now - ive had a look at it - but there isnt enough hardware support yet. however it is fairly straight forward to recompile apps it seems.

Yes, Darwin is the underlying layer of OS X which proves that they could, if they wanted to, port to Intel. However, business wise it doesnt make any sense. Apple is a hardware company and the OS is a way to convincce you to buy their computers. Apple would have to be on the brink of bankruptcy to try putting out a full version of OS X on Intel.

Its just not going to happen.

The 68K emulator is called Basilisk II ( ***********.uni-mainz.de/~bauec002/B2Main.html
