Nothing wrong with FUSE
The headline and dismissive tone appear to suggest that the use of FUSE just adds crap software upon the crap hardware. That would be an unfair interpretation: FUSE is actually very good - it's an extremely accurate emulator, well written and still under very active development.
Phil must be horrified that his project has become associated with this piece of rubbish. Please don't tar FUSE with this shitty brush.
