I would have to do research to know what the current state of the art 
is.  I've only seen one or two in action, never delved into how they 
actually work.  I may make time to research this.  If I do I will try to 
hook one up on the IRC channel for folks to play with.

I can easily demonstrate XP (with vmware) on the mac currently.  I tried 
to get freedos going once, but it didn't get real far.  This is 
something that I could give a 15 min talk on in about a weeks notice.  
If you want real meat, give me a little longer to try some more advanced 
stuff out with qemu.
