    No, they are not compatible (yet).

    You can run emulation software but the experience is horrible.

    The core hardware and architecture that each OS is based on is completely different currently.

    HOWEVER, Apple is switching to Intel based HW, rumored to be as early as 2006. Doesn't mean the OS would be compatible with anything other than Apple certified hardware / systems, although it would let the enthusiast community have some fun

    If Apple has a clue, they'll release a Mac OS that's compatible with any and all x86 architecture (x86 = what windows runs on).
