    Can a G5 PowerMac run windows?
    sounds like a stupid question but im switching from PC to mac & am looking at a used PowerMac G5 dual core 2.3 & was wondering if it can run windows as well.

    It can run Windows, but not like the Intel Macs. You can't dual boot into Windows and you can't run virtualization programs like Parallels or VMWare Fusion. The only option you have is the ridiculously slow VirtualPC.
