    Question question about Spore...
    i was looking into spore, because i really want to get it, and i saw for the mac requirements that you need leapord and an intel processor. i was thoroughly disappointed at this because i have an imac G5. but i got to thinking, because i have virtual pc 7.0.3(XP pro), could i use that to run it? i'm not sure so help would be appreciated. thanks.

    No: Virtual PC doesn't support 3D acceleration.

    The reason Spore requires an intel processor is because it's a "Cider" port, meaning it uses wine-like technology to allow windows apps to run under OS X.
