PearPC is worth using only in order to get familiar with the Mac OS X interface. It works in windows or linux and allows you to install Mac OS X but only that, not any programs (from my experience). If anyone is interested i would advise him to try the osx86 project, or even better buy a Mac mini
By the way, Mac OS X is sweeeeeet.....
PearPC is basically a PowerPC emulator which runs on Windows and *nix and can host Mac OS X, Darwin and Mandrake for the PowerPC.
However, as I mentioned in an earlier post, with the move of Apple to the x86 platform and the (
) project which shows you how to run Mac OS X natively on non-Apple x86 hardware, the future of PearPC seems unclear.
Oops! Sorry, The_Berzerker's post just slipped in before mine but we're both saying the same thing.
Although you could google it to find the available distros for power pcs, here is a little help. A lot of the distros are available for power pcs, the most known is Yellow Dog Linux, but you could also try Ubuntu.
Hope i helped, here are the links
