Emmanuel Dreyfus Interview
On Lamp talks to
"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)."
