    Virtual PC?

    An answer to my own question, no.

    Microsoft owns Virtual PC. Of course they want Mac users to be able to use Windows in the OS X environment, but vice versa? Nope.

    Just better off using VMware to run Linux on a Windows box.

    Nah that shit won't work. Totally different structure.

    But I might be wrong. I know on some other tech forum somebody actually pulled if off. I lost he link (it was on an older powerbook I used to own and gave it away so I doubt I can find it again).

    its not possible due to the primary chipset that the apples run on any of their motherboards. osx is just as at fault as windows. its not microsofts fault either , its intels fault , and apples honestly. so enough bashing of windows. carry on.

    Download some wack theme and you can emulate the GUI. There are some O.K. ones out there, as far as running the actual OS, you can't. If you are looking for a new operating system to play around with I recommend you download Linux (just run it as a secondary OS)
