    I have windows XP, is it possible to put apple software on a PC. This probably sounds amazingly stupid, but there has to be a way!! lol if you were to have two operating Systems, ie XP and Mac OS X would you be able to essentiall have software like, final cut pro on the apple part and just simply turn the computer on in Mac mode....or is this impossible?

    Thanks,

    You can use emulation software to run mac applications in windows. But it's far from perfect.

    Macintosh can run windows apps with "ms virtual pc" well.

    I can tell you about running Virtual pc on a Mac being a complete joke. It doesn't do the job properly at all and is such a massive resource hog that it's easier to get a pc.

    I can only assume it's something similar visa versa.
