You are looking for SheepShaver (PPC) and/or Basilisk (68k).

That's a terrible attempt at a troll.

Executor also does Mac m68k machine level emulation. PearPC does Mac PPC. Qemu does both. I can't comment on how they stand with respect to performance or compatibility at this point.

Are you talking about actual hardware emulation? If you goal is just to run OS X on Windows, you can do it very well in VMWare and probably VirtualBox, though without QuartzExtreme/CoreImage - so no video playback, 3d and image manipulation.

Yeah, but that's OSX x86.

Are we talking Motorola 68k? power pc? x86 OS X?

Mac could mean anything from 1984 to the apple store right now!

I'm gathering that thread is a troll though, in that case I would say it's better to emulate windows from a mac and then run mac within the windows emulator. So buy a macbook pro --> install windows 10 in a vm --> install virtualbox in the win10 VM--> install osx. :confused: :lol:
Sup. I like computers. Are you a computer?

Are they still in business?

I'd say you could hackintosh almost everything post-2010 with Clover and a few kexts without any issues for the most part, or if you want to be a puritan just add your custom dsdt/ssdts in the mix.

It's a little more complicated with older hardware, actually I'm considering getting C2D and G4 minis to use with Leopard and Tiger instead of foraging for just the right cards.

But this excludes "Windows" from the emulation equation altogether and is only X86.

I had no hands-on experience with Macs prior Tiger except for sheepshaver etc, but would imagine graphic acceleration was not nearly as important in the past, so you could probably run most of the apps in emulators without really noticing the lack of it.
