Sorry but it seems my question is not so clear. I am asking about KXen
as the hypervisor, but not about guest support.
I should restate my question as: Currently the hypervisor for Windows
OS is available for download (as XP/Vista/7 are supported). How about
the (KXen) hypervisor for Linux? When is it available? And will that
target upstream, and use virtops? And is there any significant
difference with KVM?
I guess the answer will be "that is not ready now", but some
information about future plan would be helpful.
