[Qemu-devel] coLinux and Qemu? --was-- Plex86 and Qemu

Just a thought, but coLinux (www.colinux.org) has a low-level Windows driver to give the Linux kernel access to the  CPU.  Perhaps this could be modified to simply allow Qemu to execute user-space code (a la kqemu) on Windows?

I'm afraid I'm not nearly enough of an uber-hacker to even assess the viability...

Fabrice mentioned long ago that his module would only work with Linux hosts.  I don't know why.  Whether its his familiarity with Linux, or if it's something that can only be done under Linux and not Windows.  (I have no idea how vmware & virtualPC do their stuff, or what method kqemu uses.)

So when he did finally release it, it was no surprise.  I was already resigned to the fact that it wasn't going to help me in the slightest.  And therefor I don't care what license it is released under.  If it ever works under Windows, then I'll care.

When you announced your plans, I was hoping that it might be something that I and 95% of the rest of the world could actually use.  You weren't clear in your original message, so I asked.

Turns out I was wrong though.

Since it's not going to help us, I have no further interest in your project.

Your project sounds like it falls into the exact same category as qemu-fast and now kqemu... Mildly worth knowing they exist, but of no practical value for me.  No reason to get excited or upset.
