And if not, you'll at least have one.

There are mac emulators. Both processor and operative system emulators,
really. But they are usually System 7 or MacOS 8 emulators, or emulating an
older mac processor, and can't run either MacOS 9 or OSX.

The best thing to do here, I think, is to actually buy a mac. If you then
run a remote client, you can have the mac at one place, and have full
access to everything from your windows or linux computer.

On the other hand, if you get a mac, there's plenty of x86 processor
emulators and virtual machine programs that you can use on that machine to
run windows. VMWare, bochs, VC etc. All in all, running a mac with a pc
emulator is far easier than running a pc with a mac emulator.
