False:  Wine will run on PPC Macs.  It even has PPC specific code in
it.  However, Wine on a PPC Mac WILL NOT run Windows programs as Windows
code is for x86 type processors.  However, if you are willing to try and
truly be bored, you can get QEMU which is a x86 to PPC processor
emulator and then build Wine on top of this and then run your Windows
programs.  I've read of program load times in the span of hours...
