qvm86 is obsolete

Item posted by Paul Brook <pbrook> on Sun 21 Jan 2007 04:16:21 PM UTC.

InnoTek have released their VirtualBox code under the GPL.
As far as I'm concerned this obsoletes qvm86, and I see no point continuing development. I recommend anyone interested in qvm86 use VirtualBox instead.

Now that's good news :)

VirtualBox also has proprietary parts (posted by Sylvain Beucler, Tue 23 Jan 2007 10:36:49 AM UTC)

At http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Editions
we can see that features we take for granted in QEMU like USB support and shared guest/host folders are only available in their proprietary version.

This sounds like a good incentive to continue work on qvm86 and get a completely free, efficient VM :)
