    very interesting. somewhat like wine on pc linux. however, the only ppc computers capable of running osx would be some high end ibm servers and maybe yellowdog's "brick" (i'm not sure how they have it spelled) computers. if this project yielded promising results, there would be a lot of independent manufacturers cropping up that made ppc netbsd boxes.

    Moving to Unix has just opened SO many possibilities.

    When it comes down to it, what does it matter what processor is in the background, as long as it runs like a Mac should I am happy. I would be totally satisfied, though, if the case looked like a Mac, the software ran like a Mac and Apple was releasing new machines that were faster than the previous ones in regular intervals like they do.
