DS Emulator = Waste of my Time

I checked up earlier today on DSemu, a program which hopes to someday be a DS emulator. Imran Nazar, it's author, states:

"Curently, since very little information about the DS is on public release, this is a Gameboy Advance emulator for Windows"

When I initially tried this program out (last week I believe) it did not function at all. I tried it on three different computers and all I got was an immediate crash! Right when you try to run a GBA ROM or even the test ROMs provided.....BOOM!

So, when I visited the project's webpage and noticed this news brief,
"First of all, the emu crashed a heck of a lot on customers' computers. I tracked the problem down to a stray line in the Pause menu option; all good now!"

I was anxious to download. Quickly, I executed the program only to see "dsemu.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." As a last resort I tried to recompile everything with the included Makefile. Of course, that didn't work either.

So to end my ramble, I think it would be best to let this project mature some before trying to make any use of it.
