Very cool, bmw.

I hadn't been keeping up with this project. I was aware that it was out there but that was a while ago and nothing was close to running then. I'm going to have to give this a go and see how fast it can run. I'll have to see if my athlon with a gig of ram can run OS X as fast as my 400Mhz G4. :icon_cool

Another cool project is Mac-on-Linux ( It's not an emulator but it's a virtual machine. It's for linux but there was some porting work to NetBSD but I haven't heard anything lately. It allows you to run a PPC OS in a virtual machine or multiple instances. Since it isn't emulating the hardware it is 90-95% speed of native. I see they are working on getting it running on OS X now. Mmmmm.
