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.
