Well, AFAIK sawmill was a project which never left it's highly
experimental stage, so it's nothing you want to use (besides getting it
actually). But I've never seen it myself so I may tell nonsense.

L4Linux-2.2 is quite stable by now but has more and more problems with
recent hardware (no surprise).

To play around with L4, use Fiasco/UX. You don't need a extra machine or
similar, just run it on your shell. You can't really do driver
development there, of course. But for real user level stuff it's nice.
