The virtualisation battle

Why can’t you run Mac OS on a Windows PC from within a VMware or Parallels virtual PC? Why does the Windows Vista EULA only allow the virtualization of Vista Ultimate and Business? It’s all to do with both companies wanting to control virtualization in order to protect profits.

To me this appears as if there is an enterprise demand for OSX that Apple are almost reluctant to recognise. I wonder if Jobs has even entertained the idea of a cost-benefit analysis?
