This paragraph says that Mac OS X is a supported platform for JBuilder, but the Borland site seems to disagree, listing only Windows, Linux, and Solaris as supported for the latest version of JBuilder (which is 9 as of this writing).

They also said that if demand increases, they may change their decision.
