    [news=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ab/Apple-logo.png/100px-Apple-logo.png]MacOSXRumors claims that according to "reliable sources", Apple is developing virtualization software to be incorporated into the next version of Mac OS X - Leopard.

    According to the rumor site, the upcoming software is code named "Chameleon" and is being developed alongside both Intel and Microsoft.

    Virtualization software would potentially allow users to run alternative operating systems alongside Mac OS X. There has been previous discussion about Virtualization Technology support in Intel's processors.

    Microsoft has been reported as being committed to porting Virtual PC to the Intel Macs, but early claims indicated that Apple had "yet to provide developers with the deep hooks needed for such virtualization." This rumor would suggest that such support may not arrive until Mac OS X 10.5 , Leopard, which is expected to be first demoed at WWDC in August.

    While Booting Windows XP on Intel Macs is now possible, many users look forward to using a virtual Windows XP environment alongside Mac OS X. This sort of side-by-side existence would prevent the need for rebooting to use a particular application.

    They shouldn't be able to do that without Microsoft incorporating virtual os software into Windows Vista to run OSX 10.4+

    I still use Osx86 on my PC though. ehehe, can't stop everyone.

    They could though. MS makes only software and no hardware. MS has NOTHING to do with the hardeware aspect and they even asked Apple if they would allow windows to be run. They can't just stop apple from incorporating it becuase they allow like every other manafacturer to use it.

    Apple doesn't want others running their software on regular PC's.
