the vmware people or IBM is your best bet there. I know IBM's had something to let you run at list win2k on their POWER mainframes forever...

did I say POWER, I think I meant s/390, but i think they did that for their power boxes, too.

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.

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.

I'm not aware of Win2k ever running on the POWER boxes. The current set of POWER boxes can do Linux, AIX and i/OS.

Didn't they have some sort of weird daughterboard with an x86 chip on it that could run 'doze?

the ppc branch died with nt4 and was dug out again for the XBox2

(as did the mips & alpha branch)

don't think so, wince just has an arm port plus x86 afaik.

the mipsel port was dropped way back in 2k3

IG, you are right, I forgot about those boxes. IXS (Integrated Xseries Server).
It was a PC that was connected to the server by an IOP. The Xseries system ran windoze, but on an actual intel proc.

WinCE can run on ARM, SH4, MIPS, and x86.

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.

So do you have to load in .net and all that other crap to write a good old fashion c++ program?
