Which version of Plex86 are you talking about?  The original one now at 
Savannah, or the Plex86 v2 at SourceForge?

The reason I'm asking is that I use Windows, not Linux.  And I'm usually 
wanting to run OS's other than Linux.  (Dos, Win98, WinXP.)  (And I usually get 
the semi-daily build off FreeOSZoo, since it's easier to do that than to build 
it myself.)

Therefor Fabrice's new module is useless to me.  Nice idea etc., but utterly 
useless to me.

Plex86 v2 is also Linux only, and requires patched guest kernels.

I think the original version was for any OS, wasn't it?  But it was never 
stable, was it?  Hence the reason it was abandoned.

And others, such as CoLinux, are also linux only.  (And require patched kernal 
or host.)

Anyway, the point I'm making (and asking about) is that the majority of 
potential users are either going to run Windows as the guest, or as the host..  
(And possibly both.)

So for the majority of people, for the majority of cases, it seems like most of 
these 'fast emulator' projects are useless...  Nice idea and such, but not 
really helpful.

So... is your idea going to be helpful to the majority of potential users?
