Xen can run on a Wintel Mac (not necessarily entirely straightforwardly, but I 
seem to recall someone running a Mac Mini as a Xen / HVM testing box).  I 
think the example I read about booted into Linux then kexec-ed into Xen, I 
don't know if direct booting into Xen would be possible.

Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
