While I am not among those who are enlightened enought to talk about opcodes and their proper optimization, I do have a few observations to make, having watched this list for 2 months. 1. People really don't like newcomers on this list.

As a newbie from a few weeks ago, that is *not* my experience, people have been quite helpful.

I can only confirm the latter: Pretty helpful suggestions, comments and help.

3. QEMU is rather DIFFICULT to use. I have been a UNIX admin for 10 years.
How do you define "UNIX admin" ?  *lol*

Well I haven't, and I managed fine. I would venture to say that qemu is *not* for casual users at the moment, its in heavy dev and prone to breaking :(

4. I am compiling a list of my difficulties, and will be writing documentation to help people setting qemu for the first time. The existing documentation simply does not cover in high detail how to get qemu working.

How to start a terminal window?

  For example, I found it very confusing on what
qemu-fast is for. A simple "QEMU-FAST ONLY works with linux at this time. You must install a working GUEST image, apply the appropriate patch to the GUEST kernel, and then run qemu-fast. DO NOT TRY to use QEMU-FAST otherwise. It will simply segfault!

Did you ever visit QEMU's mainpage?
If so, did you read anything?
