Default Mac OSX on PC?

I know this is most likely not possible, but is there any way that I could install Mac OSX on my PC? I want to do it without having to run an emulator. I seriously don't feel like spending $38477487374987 on a Mac computer.

Thanks for any help.

Don't think so. Unless you emulate or buy a Mac I can't think of any different way.

If you really want to use a MAC OS on your PC. Just use an emulator, I would recommend VMWare.

Try PearPC from http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/
It's a PowerPc emulator and it's free.

There's a OS based on the open-sourced Darwin called GNU/Darwin. Heard its not bad.
