Well, that would certainly be a poke in the eye for the virtualisation vendors.
The Register has picked up on the latest Apple mystery making the rounds on the Internet, and concludes that it's a possibility.
I certainly don't see them pulling this off without Microsoft's help.

More likely, though, is that this is a tweak made to help the likes of Parallels and VMWare more tightly integrate their Windows-on-Mac tools with the host operating system. Parallels in particular tries to allow Mac users to run Windows
apps as if they were native applcations rather than apps running on Windows running in a Mac OS X window.
This scenario is about a billion times more likely.
I just dont understand how Apple can make their OS only work for their machines (without intervantion) but they feel free to write things so they can use windows apps. It seems sorta one sided to me.
"No you cant use our OS but we can boot yours and use your apps as we wish."
All you need is a Virtual PC to run Apple app, but then, you already can get it on windows. [A]
