I was wondering about how fast it was... I believe I had read somewhere that it ran them at native speed. Is that true? Are there any compatibility problems like Wine has? (ie. some programs not displaying correctly, some programs simply not running at all)

Even on slower machines, light weight tasks are pretty close to native. Processor, graphic or memory intensive applications do have a performance hit, as will 3D applications (no acceleration), but it's still certainly usable.

Since it's actually virtualizing a PPC machine and not emulating, it's nothing like WINE, but more like VMWare. Anything that runs in OSX should run in OSX on MOL.
