The world has gone mad, officially. For years Mac OS users had to put up with the slow (and reliable) Connectix Virtual PC, followed by Microsoft's Virtual PC. Both were emulators that enable a Mac user to run Windows apps within a window, albeit very slowly. To be fair, too slowly. We craved for a solution that enabled us to run Windows more effectively and productively.
Since the move to the Intel platform, we've seen Parallels Desktop, Apple Bootcamp and a public preview of VMWare's forthcoming virtual technology for the Mac. Parallels Desktop is still virtual technology, but is both fast and more than usable. Bootcamp runs at system speed, but you need to run Windows separately from Mac OS X.
Codeweavers have just announced CrossOver Mac which enables you run a small number of Windows apps from within Mac OS X. They open as a Mac application. For instance, if you need to use Mac OS X, but miss Microsoft Outlook, you can now run Outlook within OS X! Check it out and add your comments.
And, yep, it'll run Android rather than RiscOS
