plex86 development stalled because of the economy going bad and almost
all developers were laid off. I hope the development will start soon
(plex86 is still busy moving to savannah at the moment).

I've heard that bochs is pretty stable and still under development,
but it's also slow because it emulates every instruction instead of
just visualizing the processor. Anyway, being free is enough for
me. It means that I can hack it if something annoys me.
