Can I run OS X virtually in Windows?

Episode 1094 (20:33)

Ross from Ontario, CAN

Ross wants to know if it's possible to run Mac OS X in virtualization on Windows. Leo says no. Mac OS X is firmware dependent, and as such, it requires the Mac hardware to run. It's easier to run the other way by running Windows virtually from a Mac, though. Ross could build a "hackintosh," but Leo says it's illegal to do and Apple's updates break it on a consistent basis. So it's not really worth it.
