    So, i'm curious about Boot Camp. Is it virtualization, or basically dual-boot ing OSX and Windows?

    I don't have a Mac right now, but i'm considering it for down the line.

    it is dual booting windows, windows runs at native speed, with 3d support, its pretty nice

    Thanks everyone.

    Another question... if OSX can run on Intel stuff nowadays... wouldnt i be able to install it on a non-apple computer? Keep in mind i don't necessarily know what i'm talking about when it comes to Apple/Mac/OSX, so take it easy on me, lol.

    In a nutshell, no.
    It is possible, but it is done with a hacked/pirated/non apple approved version of the software.
