    Has anyone ever successfully implemented Darwine on their PPC systems? I came across it on wikipedia and got excited. I have have been trying for a couple of days now and have been having no luck getting any of my windows business software to work on my ppc.

    They haven't done PPC support and at this rate never will, you'll need a new intel mac i'm afraid ;).

    You will not be able to run Wundows software on your PPC mac even if you do get Darwine working on it. The only use of darwine on PPC is to allow developers to port there Windows software to the PPC mac.

    Microsoft sold (sells?) virtual PC that runs Win software on PPC macs and you can goggle for "QEMU" for a free emulator
