    I have. The most popular is probably "Executor"...check out http://www.ardi.com for the low-down. The practicality of these emulators is usually limited...since the best emulation anyone has been able to pull off (to my knowledge) is 68K chipset (i.e. No PPC software will run in the emulator).

    I've used Basilisk II. We used it to run a legacy application that wasn't ported to the PC yet. For occasional use, it worked fine. If you're planning extensive use, get a real mac, new or second hand.
