There is a way if you have the right hardware.
OSx86

You need to get a version of OSx86 hacked... and thats illegal...

There also used to be something called PearPC, but I think Apple shut it down.

no, i still use it, but its emulated. its slow and theres no sound. it uses virtual drives and stuff so its useless.

i found this other thing here: http://www.uneasysilence.com/os-x-proven-hacked-and-running-on-an-ordinary-pc/
is that the same thing you linked? i'd really like to hear from people who have done this so i know what its like. it would be so sweet if i could build a sub-$500 pc with compatible parts to run os x natively. no need to buy an over-priced apple computer or use stupid windows. you get the best of both worlds.

p.s. is it illegal to do this? if it is, thats pretty stupid. if your buying a computer and buying a legit copy of the OS, i dont see what the problem is.
