The Mac OS is strictly limited to Mac computers.

Mac is for little girls, I used both Windows and Mac, was once a fanboy of Windows and Mac at another stage, and now, Windows is the right place for me

No.

There's instructions on how to modify and install OS X 10.4 / 10.5 on many "windows" computers. However it's against the license agreements, and you still have to have specific hardware for it to work right (eg Intel parts). It's very buggy, patches can make your operating system not boot, etc. Not recommended.
