MacOS X 10.3 does care if it's New World ROM or not, at least until Ryan
Rempel updates XPostFacto based on the released Darwin source to create a
new 10.3 installer that adds low-level kernel and driver support for the
Old World ROM based Macs that Apple has dropped support for in 10.3.

Mac-On-Linux isn't an emulator, it's a hardware abstraction layer, so all
PowerPC code running inside it is running native on the hardware.

Not the same thing, since DOS doesn't run on MIPS and SoftWindows isn't a
HAL, it's an emulator.
