There is a new post at my Wind River blog, about warnings in virtual platforms. It is an art to add good warnings to virtual platform models, and just being correct visavi the hardware behavior is not necessarily that helpful for a software developer. A virtual platform should warn about suspicious operations, even if they are technically “correct”.
I also have to apologize for the slow blogging in January of 2011. There was too much going on at work and quite a few days taking care of sick kids. Hopefully, the pace can improve going forward.
