    Well, lately XP has destroyed my life. 2 Trojans and I'm nearly dead and whats the point of formatting when they will come again? So I decided to buy a Mac but then wondered if I could save hundreds of pounds and just put Leopard on my self assembled PC. Now I am fully aware of osx86 but I aint no fan of hacking. Wether you call tha hacking or not. So is it possible to pick up a copy of Leopard at an Apple store or whatever and install it on my non Apple computer that currently has XP. My dad called a computer company and they said you can, just like you are upgrading to Vista but obv not crappy Vista. So I'm asking if that is actually possible or was it just a lie? And will all my drivers work and my sound and network and all that aswell like webcam?

    Thx

    often users run into problems while trying to run osx on their PCs.
    you could always try an emulator, although I'm guessing that's not what you wanted, since your windows is messed.
