Windows 7: Any way to run Win7 on a PPC Mac?

Any way to run Win7 on a PPC Mac?

Found a Mac Pro with two 2 GHz PowerPC G5 CPUs, 1 GB of RAM, and a 160 GB HDD for $220 on eBay (refurbished, and by a top-rated seller). I'm just curious... is it possible to get Windows 7 (or any Windows version at all for that matter, given the CPU architecture...) on it? I'm mainly getting it to run Xcode, have a Mac of some sort, and have a machine with an architecture other than x86.

Um, OP is asking about running Windows 7 on PowerPC architecture. Mac Pros are Intel architecture.

I don't think it's possible. It getting harder and harder to even run a decent Linux distro on PPC much less Windows.
