I don't think so... I cannot install MAC OS X directly on my PC since it require special hardware. I know it can be done under simulation but you still need a Windows or Linux system underneath... And the whole debate stays, yes Photoshop will work but not my games and GigaStudio.
mac os x doesn't require any special hardware at all. as far as i know it does require a SSE2 cpu, but if your computer has been manufactured in the past few years you likely fall into that category.
i have out of the box support in osx for SATA, ethernet, sound & video on my intel box. i didn't buy anything special to be compatible with it, and more drivers are emerging every day.
the only thing required 'underneath' is a mac formatted partition as the first partition on your drive. and of course you don't need an existing operating system to create that partition, a bootdisk will suffice. i even run linux + xp alongside my mac osx 10.4.3
mac ran on intel -long- before windows ran on mac
now to answer the question posed by our thread starter:
yes i dig microsoft (a f***ing grave!)
