 Virtualization begins to materialize in Linux

Nice overview of virtualization in Linux.

"Biederman explains that there are actually two separate and non-conflicting approaches to virtualization that are being addressed for the Linux kernel. One is to use a hypervisor, which handles calls to hardware allowing a system to run multiple (and different) operating systems at the same time in virtual servers; with paravirtualization (as with Xen), the kernel or OS is modified so that it knows that it's running on a virtual machine."
