Yes you can. Just use and iOS launcher. Google search it.

It won't actually be ios for obvious programming reasons but it will look and act like it.

That would probably be the closest you will EVER get.

Like not being able to run Windows on a Mac?
Correct. All the virtual machine technology, e.g., hackintosh, VMWare, Parallels, etc., have a layer of emulation software that sits between the hardware and the operating system that 'fools' the operating system into thinking it's running directly on supported hardware.

What? I didn't know Android uses Cydia. Read before 'trying' to help others.

Windows is installed an ran from your hard drive. On its own partition. Other than the bios. What is being emulated?

Go back to my original statement; Operating systems are made to run on specific hardware. What's Windows designed to run on? PowerPC? No. Solaris? No. Intel? Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner. What kind of hardware are recent Macs built with? Intel! Where do the drivers come from so Windows can talk to the Mac Intel hardware? Boot Camp! Does Boot Camp do any emulation? I don't know. I don't use it. My original statement stands and is not contradicted by you running Windows on your Mac.
