I run Mac on Linux on mine as well, but until recently I didnt have any
version of MacOS greater than 8.6 - so thaty's what it runs, but it does a
darn good job of it, and exporting MOL on my Linux Desktop from my PPC
into an Xnest window on my main workstation is just damn cool.  See the

By the way, the main Linux box here is Slackware 8.1 and that slick icon
management is all taken care of by Rox-Filer.  Those are not the icons
created by running processes through xfce.
