How are you doing this?

VMWare fusion has a new feature called "Unity" which makes program windows from windows apps appear magically on your OS X desktop. (Though parallels had the feature first.)

VMWare is one of the older virtual machine software.

Konqueror is just running off of a linux box via X11.

That's... LUDICROUS! ;) The most emulation I do is wine for Grim Fandango or dosbox for the old Sierra games. I briefly toyed with the idea of trying to get QBasic working in dosbox, though I haven't followed through (yet).

It might be ludicrous, but it could be so much more ludicrous.

I didn't even try breaking out a C64 or Apple II emulator. :)

Sadly the base version of WINE doesn't look like its well supported on OS X. Codeweavers has a separate pay version that they've ported.

So I've heard; I don't really like proprietary software but I can't blame the people who want to get paid more for what they write. I've rarely used a Mac. I use Windows and Linux, the former only when I need to do something that is absolutely unsupported on Linux (mostly it was music stuff). Since I just found out about this wonderful app named fst I think I will be spending even less time in Windows. :)
