    As Kishba suggested to me that since I spend enough time reading the post on macrumors, I might as well get an account and start posting, so, here I go. Does OS X (or other 3rd party software) have the ability to use OSX as a "terminal server" in the way that micro$oft does in win2000? I would love to be able to use my mac apps on many different platforms, it might give me a reason to boot my old windoz laptop up.

    well in an attempt to resurrect this thread so others will help out:

    i don't think it'd be possible to run any mac os x software on the pc's.... it's barely possible to run X apps in 9 (like adobe apps)

    i suppose vnc is the only thing close to what you're looking for

    "terminal server"

    What do you mean by "terminal server"? you mean remotly connect to the OS X box and run terminal apps? If thats what you ment, yes of course you can.
