No such luck. Mac OS 7 and earlier are now freeware under GNU and can even be run on emulators (I'd post how but every time I do I seem to get in trouble even though it's perfectly legal!). Mac OS is rally old, though, circa the mid 90s I believe, and the emulations probably aren't all that great. Other than that you'll have to buy a Mac to run that software.
