If you're into testing your sites on everything that moves, you probably either have a bunch of machines or utilize something like VMware or VirtualPC, which is fine and dandy for the PC OS'es. What about PowerPC, however? Is there an emulator for the PowerPC machine. It's even better if it runs on Intel, but even if it runs on a Mac, it would be great to get one. Are you aware of any such software? I probably would opt in for buying a decent Mac (besides, I am getting addicted to the darn things anyway), but I want to have a reason to do so. Namely, a possibility of running an OS or two on top of the primary OS, for the site testing purposes. If you know of any such software that emulates PowerPC on PowerPC or PowerPC on Intel compatible, please reply. I am sure a bunch more would find this info beneficial

A follow-up

It would seem that the PearPC is the best thing going on right now. Correct me if I am wrong, though.

Mac Emulator

Yes, apparently it's totally unusable at present. However, with it's recent publicity, I'm sure many an open-source developer will jump aboard its production. Laughing out loud

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Discuss...
