LinuxEmu has an interview with the gnuboy coder Laguna. For those outside of gaming circle, gnuboy is a Gameboy emulator that runs under Linux.

"Q. What was the hardest part with coding a GameBoy (color) emulator?"
"Laguna: Insane amounts of detail! Lots of people probably expect that it would be a lot harder to code an emulator for a more modern system, say Playstation or N64 or something. After all, to emulate those consoles you need to know at least a moderate amount of 3D coding and you have to write a VERY fast cpu core if you want your emulator to run on anything but a super-fast computer. But 3D and speed are the things I was already accustomed to."
