Struggled with a Title...

Anyway, considering there is a solution to get Windows XP on your Mac, do you think they will come up with one to get your Mac on your PC.

The reason I mention it, is because a popular problem with people and Macs is the fact it tends to be more awkward to upgrade your Computer. Obviously this would be solved if this could happen. It would need a Company backing it but I could only see it working if Apple themselves done it.

Thoughts?

Sorry if this or something similar has been posted before.

If you meant 'reverse' and not "reserve", then there is already something like that. It is called Pear PC. It allows you to run OS X on a Windows machine in a windowed, emulated environment similar to Parallels on Mac.

Yep Sorry about the Title, Could you Change that.

Not a fan of Parallels or any similar software. More referring to the actual ability to Boot up the OS similar to what Boot Camp does with Windows XP.

Well, that won't happen. Apple has made certain of that. They are not going to allow their OS to boot on any machine other than a Mac.

And before anyone thinks of mentioning the Developer OS x86 pirated hack, think twice... think three times, then read the Forum Rules section on illegal activity discussion, then think again before posting anything about it.
