Yes , I have seen it done (on the internet) and have been meaning to give it a blast. If you search google for osx on a pc, you'll plenty of results including how to install osx on a hackintosh and OSx86 Project/Insanely Mac.

Be warned though I doubt you'll get any support for the twisted technological beast that you create :-)

Alienware is not an Apple-labeled computer.

Yes and no. If Apple, opens their OS to all platforms, theyll run into the same driver problems that Windows and Linux can have. If they stay with just Apple endorsed hardware, that will never be a problem. Im shure quite a few people would buy OS X if it was opened to all hardware, especially with how expensive Apple machines are.
