Can emulation under Linux rival the speeds achieved either by VRPC/Windows or native hardware? Doesn't VRPC rely heavily on the graphics and disk access acceleration available under XP to run as fast as it does? Archive magazine benchmarked VRPC against an Iyonix and its Dhrystone rating was just over one third of the Iyo's; the HD read/write speeds were 10x-15x faster however :-0

I don't wish to belittle the efforts of either Tom Walker or Peter Naulls by the way, and I appreciate that this development is at an early stage, whereas as VRPC is relatively mature.
