Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers

The OP is ignorant.

PowerPC systems still underlie many of the core capabilities in big companies because of its hot swap capability. VMs exist in this case but still cannot replicate the hot swap nor can they replace the big iron original basis.

However, the lack of MacOS VMs is 100% Apple patent trolling.

MacOS is a flavor of Linux - there is absolutely nothing preventing virtualization besides Apple's lawyers.
