Depending upon what you want, you can run MacOS up to 9.0.4 on Intel 
systems using SheepShaver. Just about everything works, but some of the
specialty graphics don't. 

Performance is the usual for an emulator, you get about 200mHz of emulated
PPC speed for each gHz of Intel speed. SheepShaver will multithread, so if you
have a multicore system, it will run faster.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to misquote it.
