forgive me if this has been beaten to death but I've been thinking again about the problem of running Windows as a guest OS under xen. I understand and accept all the arguments of why you need to modify the core OS for your virtualization process.

Under the opinion that there is no crime if optimization fails on incorrect code, would it not be appropriate to do all the things necessary to run Windows unmodified albeit poorly slash slowly? assuming of course that people want to run Windows. The only reason I do is because of speech recognition requirements but that's a very different conversation.

of course, Linux would continue to run at its normal speed.
