The holy grail of a dual-boot Windows/Mac OS X machine remains elusive, as does Virtual PC for the Intel Mac. But for those who want some Windows functions on their Intel Mac, the folks over at the OSX86 project say they have managed to get Wine running on Mac OS X for Intel.

For those who aren't familiar with it, Wine is an open source program that lets users run some Windows software on Unix and Linux machines. I'm not an expert in the technology, but there are some screenshots and discussion on their forums that get into some of the details.
