    I had some programs on my old Mac (like Mac App Store apps) that I would like on my windows 8 PC. I wondered if there is a way to put Mac OS on my PC via VirtualBox, VMWare, etc? I just want to use Final Cut Pro on my new PC. Thank you!

    I have no idea if anyone has made a Hackintosh on a Windows 8 PC yet, or if it's possible.

    Secure Boot might present an issue. It is just recently that solutions were made to run Linux/Windows 8 dual boot on Windows 8 PCs. That still isn't easy to do.

    I thought about making a Hackintosh once. Took a look at all the steps involved, threw my hands up and walked out the room.

    It's not as easy as installing Linux on a PC. There is a lot of hardware customization involved, plus one needs to change the BIOS. If you do a Bing or Google search for "Hackintosh", you'll see that it is not easy to do, even on an older PC that does not have Windows 8 secure bootloader.
