In practice Fabice is pretty much the only person who's ever done significant

never been a public source repository, so you get to use whatever random
tarballs Fabrice leaves lying around. If those don't work, noone really

I've maintained tarballs for both 1.4.0 and 1.3.0 at the qemu project
on OpenSolaris.org, and just realized that I never put into the SVN repo
the mods I made to the 1.4.0 code.  I had tested it with Solaris SXCE
and Ubuntu 08.04.  If anyone shows some interest in testing, I'll import
the 1.4.0 into the SVN repo.  I believe that I picked up the minor
patches that were posted to the list to fix compilations on linux
with some various kernels.

Personally, I'd prefer that it lived outside of the QEMU tree.  It is never going to go into upstream Linux and it's not something that I think is worth supporting.

The only thing that prevents kvm being used in Windows or Darwin/OS X is that it depends too heavily on the Linux Kernel.  Kqemu, on the other hand, has been ported to Windows, and someone tried to do a Darwin port.
