There's always the option of using vesa mode, and it works ok but doesn't look as nice as hardware acceleration (the mouse cursor flickers when you move it around or if there is background animation, videos will play slow full-screen, etc)

Yeah it's not really worth screwing up your system over... Anyway if you were going to use it as your main OS, you could always run parallels or darwine or VMWare Player in OSX. It's actually not as bad as you'd think. I really haven't had to actually start Windows in a long ass time, and the only recent Windows software I used were tools for flashing a PSP, Safari 3.1 for Windows (just to check it out) and Buzz Machines, but they all worked fine in wine.
