Hi Chris,

Just a note to say I have looked through the website, and I like it -
it's clean and clear to read, but in the "Considerations" page, you've
put something that is very misleading. I quote:

Although you have put "emulation" in quotes, to say it's not really
emulation, I think this section might be titled "Running Windows
Software" with a short discussion of running windows under Linux as you
have there.

Otherwise a good effort ...
