pearpc


PearPC, a PowerPC architecture simulator for PCs. (News.com article). Check out the screenshots as well. Speed is of course a problem, and it stands to reason that simulating a RISC architecture on a CISC processor would naturally be worse than simulating CISC over RISC (as Virtual PC does on the Mac). The News.com article notes that speed is about 2.2 percent of the machine it runs on. But it's still cool. :)
