Erm, I'm not sure that he meant it the way you took it exactly. Doesn't change the fact that it wouldn't make much sense to run the Amiga port of VICE through emulation when the latest version with all features functional is available and developed for PC first. This news item is more about using real Amiga set-ups rather than emulation. If it works via WinUAE, then that's a good thing given it's an app, but quite pointless for regular use.
Anyone tried it on real hardware and want to share their first impressions?
