    OpenSuse 10 works fine.. But not like Mac Os..
    If you like advanture there is hacked PC version of Mac Os.. You can try that.

    There are no MacOS X alike Linux Distro's. If you really want to use linux (this means you're willing to invest some time to learn) you should try Ubuntu or (Open-)SUSE.

    If you want to get a feel for Linux on your Windows PC, you could try VM Ware's free VMWare Player:

    http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

    Into this you can load a Ubuntu browser appliance, which will give you a taste of Linux. There are some other virtual machines available, as well.

    A fun toy. One touted as a security feature -- do your risky browsing in the Ubuntu browser appliance, which is isolated from your host OS.

    Caveat: Do not take this as a highly knowledgeable endorsement here. I am a relative newbie to this all and am still in the babe-in-the-woods-with-a-new-toy stage. Fun, yes, most definitely. Secure?
