Re: OT: Xen

With the right CPUs (late model Intel only at the moment), you can run an OS unmodified with a little higher overhead. This means you can run Windows on the same box as Linux on the same box as *BSD, all at the same time. Later this year, AMD's CPUs will add a similar (but different) extension. -- Chris Adams <[email protected]> Systems and Network Administrator - HiWAAY Internet Services I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
