    Technically, you already are: Mac OS is certified UNIX under the hood!

    If you're referring to Solaris, it should run in theory but I can't guarantee the Mac will take it. Once I tried to install Ubuntu on a Macbook, which appeared to go through but when it rebooted I just got a blank white screen with a flashing folder icon indicating no OS found -- the Linux boot loader GRUB wasn't successfully installed.
  2. If you already have a Mac install VirtualBox and run one of the Unix-like systems in that.
