Hi Mac User(s)!

Alot of people I talk to have looked at converting from PC (Windows) to Apple (Mac) but all have said they won't as their PC Games aren't available for OS-X. So I thought about it, and thought about it some more and thought could Apple code an emulator for OS-X that would allow people to play PC Windows Hardware (Games). I know about Bootcamp is available but that installs Microsoft Windows on the OS-X (and really, who want's to do that to a Mac) if Apple developed an emulator to just play Microsoft Games 'out-of-the-box' that would convert my friends and also help convert alot of other people who are in the same boat.

It would be too impractical, Apple would have to emulate Windows in it's entirety, pretty much, in order to play Windows games, and then they'd be playing catch-up every time the Windows API was updated. Boot Camp (which installs on a separate partition, not "on" OSX) is a much better way to go.

Well, it really isn't up to Apple to do this. Yes, they did come up with BootCamp, but that would require Windows.
If you really don't want Windows installed, there are products that already exist that will more or less do this for a person anyway.
