it is not maintained. this applies to all Tor VM unless you've patched
and built a current version for yourself / others.

the controller is built for a windows environment. you'll have to
customize the invocation and configuration for Linux based systems.

there is no support for hardware assisted / para-virtualization by
default, due to instability and elevated permissions. for best
performance you'll have to configure the KQEMU or KVM acceleration
support yourself with the appropriate KVM and/or virtio device

more reasons too numerous to list here. moving Tor VM from a (dated)
research beta to production ready is a non-trivial effort for which
there does not seem to be much interest.
