Virtualization rising on Linux ?

Or are we experiencing a "Lets talk a lot about Linux because we wanna appease the community".

Anyways Michael does take several types of Virtualization scenario into account. See here.

In any case PID Virtualization seems like a pretty neat idea. The Big Blue has some serious plans.

IBM is continuing to develop full-featured Linux virtualization at three levels -- full OS, virtual servers, and lightweight application sets. Kolyshkin predicts that the next two big advances will be more resource management work, and a checkpointing and live migration capability. While it will be some time before all these pieces are in mainstream Linux, these careful steps show that it's materializing.

Time will tell which projects will survive and which will fizzle out. For your production you still have VMware (fortunately) to make those ratio's (see previous post) really materialize!
