I'm so lost.
Here, in the Programming room, when I see 'UML', I can only think of the Unified Modeling Language.
But, I think you guys are talking about the User Mode Linux.
KVM is an equally unfortunate choice of acronym. KVM= Keyboard, Video, Mouse (switch.)
biggest problem with virtualbox: if a VM is running, my laptop crashes instead of going to sleep.
ahh, they claim this is already fixed for the next major release.
When you guys typed 'KVM', I was actually thinking of Keyboard, Video, Mouse... figures I didn't quite get what you're talking about.

What if the hypercall is implemented with the same API as a hardware
interface? I like the way KVM goes with that..
A hypercall is not an emulated interface. A hypercall is a hypercall, and it requires fewer CPU cycles.
Ford, did you play with russian dolls as a kid? You did, didn't you?
you know? I forgot about those.
the ppc branch died with nt4 and was dug out again for the XBox2
(as did the mips & alpha branch)
xbox2 isn't WinCE?
don't think so, wince just has an arm port plus x86 afaik.
the mipsel port was dropped way back in 2k3
It was a PC that was connected to the server by an IOP. The Xseries system ran windoze, but on an actual intel proc.
Here's one of the many reasons I hate Microsoft.
I'm working with their VC++ 2008 compiler. It's a vast improvement over their 2205 compiler (er, 2005), which actively tried to strangle you if you tried to do anything with it at all (hello world, for example, doesn't compile without using the full force of the 3.5 CLR. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a little, but it still fucking sucked ass in ways too numerous to get into right now).
One of my petty annoyances, though, is that Microsoft gives you conveniences that are inconvenient.
Convenient: Tap F1 and the text you selected will be used in a search for information related to the function or whatever that you selected.
Inconvient: The aforementioned F1 will search for results in languages other than the ones you've selected. So, I am searching for '#pragma warning', and it's giving me the fucking c# version rather than the c++ version.
I can get to the documentation I need, but it's very, very annoying that it searches for results in languages completely different from the one in which you're working.
