Not with LiveCode, but there are other SDKs that are Windows based, and
even include a simulator.

Also, if you google the word "TonyMac", you'll find that there is a
hobbyist community of users who actually BUY a retail DVD of OS X, and
install it on their i3, i5, and i7 based PC's.  Although it seems possible
and even highly compatable with the right hardware, Apple's EULA would
prohibit using such a "Frankenstein system" to commercially produce apps.
Hopefully Apple will someday offer OS X for PC hardware.  I'm sure there
would be a market for it.  I'd buy it.
