Default Is it possible to run Mac OS 9/higher over XP?

Is this possible through emulation or something? Just curious.

VMWare. I think that you can emulate it through it, but the software is expensive.

You can learn more about it here:

You could say I've been around.

Nah VMWare won't let you run MacOS. It's actually not possible at the moment since it would require emulation of the PowerPC processor. Nobody has been able to develop a PowerPC emulator fast enough to run any PPC based programs yet, let alone a complicated OS like OSX.

You're only shot at doing that is too have a Mac system and run Connectix Virtual Pc to run Windows
