Since that article was written in 2005, I think Redhat has changed
directions, these days, to bet on KVM


And, yes, KVM is in the Linux Kernel (since 2.6.20?)

Redhat even acquired Qumranet, which is one of the main funder for the
development of KVM.

I am not trying to dis-credit Xen. I'd figure that while you're in the
mood for open source virtualization, I'd share some more pointers.  :)

Happy hacking,
