 Emmanuel Dreyfus Interview

On Lamp talks to Emmanuel Dreyfus.

"If we want to run a binary on a processor it was not build for, then we have to emulate the CPU in software. This kind of thing has been done by Apple for their m68k to PowerPC transition. Emulating the CPU in software costs a lot, so it will give you reasonable performances only if the native CPU is much faster than the emulated CPU (which was the case for Apple's m68k emulator for the PowerPC, but it was an unusual situation)."
