MAC OS binaries are completely different than a win32 binary and don't use standard .exe or .com extensions.

They are two different platforms. It's the reason you need to buy Office Mac or Quake 4 (Mac) for Macs. Similarly you cannot run Final Cut Pro or iMovie on Windows. Although the hardware nowadays is all pretty much the same, the OS utilizing it is proprietary, you can't mix and match apps from one for the other. The software needs to be written specifically for that platform. Make sense?

Get iAtkos or simliar and dualboot mac osx if you want to run mac applications. I just did that over the weekend, and I must say Mac is a pretty nice OS.
