 PearPC: Mac-In-Box

"PearPC is a program that runs Mac OS X on a Linux or Windows PC. Technically, this is actually a side benefit, since PearPC's primary purpose is to emulate the PowerPC processor on the x86. As is the case with emulators of advanced processors, especially in the early state that PearPC is currently in, performance is sluggish compared to an actual PowerPC. But there's no denying that it's pretty neat to see the familiar Mac OS X desktop running within a window on a non-Macintosh system."
