Running OS X on a run-of-the-mill Windows box doesn't interest me in the least. I would much rather have a speedier Windows solution running on Apple hardware.
Why? Because I'm a Mac fanatic that enjoys playing lots of games (My computer is a Windows box only because of games).

I think that the only big battle (OS-wise) has already been fought long ago, with Microsoft coming out on top. But, who knows? Maybe Apple will get a chance to re-assert themselves as masters of all things computers.

Okay, that's my two cents.

I would love to have OS X running on my windows box, because it's so much more stable and just...beautiful. I'm not such a big gaming fan, so that wouldn't bother me
