"...I don't even know how hard or how easy it would be to design a motherboard that would run both Windows and OS X well. As far as I know, no one has actually tried it yet."

???

The developer's version of OSX for Intel currently runs on existing hardware/motherboards.

Not without some hackery, I believe.

The question isn't whether it could be done, the question is whether (or how) Apple will stop it.

Apple has said they won't try to stop it. But unless they actually embrace it, the Windoze/Mac combination will be unsupported, at best. That means very few users will try to make it work. The bottom line is that a Mac with an Intel chip in it is still a Mac, not a PC.
