Will SheepShaver lack MLU and that decision is final? Will it run HORRIBLY slow if MLU was added? Will there be seperate versions, one with MLU and one not?
If you need more info, tell me ;)

Hi,

Are you referring to an MMU? SheepShaver will only get one if someone adds it.
We have Qemu available which does emulate the MMU.

Best,

Nobody I'm aware of has forked the code to add MMU support. This doesn't mean it couldn't be done, but there are no current projects to do so -- and likely won't be since QEMU already has full support, and MMU support would likely slow SheepShaver down, negating its main advantage over QEMU.
