hmm well if it is intel only, that wouldn't make any sense to me because on intel chipsets you can download bootcamp and just install windows through bootcamp... i just want to know if there is any way that i can run windows based applications on my mac?

Be warned though, it will probably be very slow and it is not really for games. And Bootcamp on Intel Macs is totally different. G4 is not Intel so that is something you must live with or make a switch to Intel if you want more flexibility between windows and mac programs.

Yes, that's the only way. Some apps are just not made for Macs and there is really no way around it.
