You can run Windows on a MAC.

Just buy the software called Virtual PC.

And den you can use Windows on it.

Virtual PC is a pain though, it takes a lot of RAM, and I think he was just refering to installing the whole OS without any of that other stuff. Virtual PC is kinda cool though.

Mac won't go on a PC because Mac OS X is only as vaguely stable as it is now because it is specifically for one load of components.

Yes, with Virtual PC it is. MAC OSX is "vaguely" stable? HAHAHHAH!! More stable then Windows is. MAC OSX is based on the UNIX architechture, allowing for a generous helping of scripts Lord K. Remember, my knowledge on PCs extends far beyond the borders of just hardware!
