I know that. I was curious about people on TPU running OS X on their PC.

I run it on VMWare. I find it much safer than just installing it raw into another partition. At least, when I did that, it corrupted my bootloader and had to spend a whole day fixing it.
But ye, it runs perfectly on VMWare... internet works, sound works, itunes and garageband work (till some extent) :)
Only things I could not get running were the iWork applications.
