    I've been wondering for awhile now if it's possible to run Virtual Mac system on a Linux based VPS?

    Appreciate it

    In short YES, but it's not pragmatic and takes more effort than it is worth.

    No! Almost all Linux VPS use OpenVZ for virtualization. With this you can't run a Virtual machine inside another virtual machine.

    Guess I should have worded my question differently.

    I'm not looking to run a virtual machine within a virtual machine per se, but rather just the same as say one can run Windows based apps on a Windows server VPS i'd like to do the same running OSX
