I think you mean PC version.

Windows version of Mac OS X would scare me.

I figured I would add that I have indeed installed OSX Leopard Server on VMWare Workstation using VMWare's Virtual Darwin Prompt to spoof the ISO and install. The last time I checked Leopard Desktop and both flavors of Snow Leopard were still in the works (in getting them working)

As said above it is possible but don't think that it is legal

Hi there
Please don't take this wrong as its not meant to be offensive but if I were developing something for a particular platform I'd eventually have to try it out on Real hardware.

Virtual machines are fine for running developed applications and even in some cases for developing new ones but sooner or later you are going to have to get hold of the "Real Hardware" to actually check it works.

I've always held off the apple platform on the grounds of expense. With W7 my lust for apple has finally disappeared and in particular I don't like that new generation of smartphones (including the I-phone) with 1000's of "apps" on them. These new phones are like walking around with a Brick in your pocket.

I've gone back to the tiny ultra thin mobiles that are basically just a phone like the thin older motorola v3 razr type - I can't even be bothered with texting - but that's just me I suppose.

A possible solution might be to pick up a used Mac at a computer fair or ebay etc. This would legalize your OS license and you'd have a cheap testing platform.

Cheers

You should check out the palm pre, Jimbo. Its really no biger than a razr but similar in function to the iphone (actually better, imo)

"Apple' Hardware?

Since when does Apple make their own hardware? The processor, Harddrive Ram Motherboard and DVD/CD Drives are all The same as any "PC"(Intel, Seagate SATA, Azus, Sony/Samsung/Lite-on), so how COULD you violate the ELUA if they don't use "Apple" Hardware?

Sometimes you have to think a bit outside of the box. Apple means that you aren't allowed to run their OS on a box that isn't Apple branded and put together by them or else you break the EULA.

I always love how people "poo-poo" Apple stuff and trash it, then desperately try everything they can to get it running on their own machines, or VM's, etc.

yeah you can run it i've done it once for the hell of it but it takes a lot of tweaking. Anyways just Google around not going to say how since i'm unsure if it's allowed... Anyways yes you can and it's easier if you have intel hardware because if you got AMD then you go to do all this other crap ....Got mac osx leopard to work on AMD hardware through a virtual box before so ye it's doable

Hi there
I've heard it runs as slow as Molasses too even with decent hardware.

If you want to try a Mac like OS why not legally install any one of the various linuxes out there -- and they are FREE. Most Linuxes can be made to look and operate very similar to Leopard as well.
