    Dunno about that, but there are some rumours circulating around that intel-OS X would be runable on PC machines. Requires some hacks and minor HW mod, though, IIRC.

    Haha, that's priceless. :D
    By the way, are the new Intel Macs cheaper than the old Power PC ones? Something tells me they're not, but I'll be gladly proven wrong.

    that's been around for a while.

    re: the XP on Mac part-
    Ars technica has a dowloadable how to and offers the bootloader. Seems really easy, I don't have a Mactel to try it on though.
