I have take a look at vmware, qemu and xen. Xen is by far the best 
solution, not only the fastest, but even the best concept. Simulating a 
software PC is very exciting, but it performs so bad that we have to 
wait another generation of PCs. Creating a Bluebottle Xen guest it looks 
to me the best solution for Linux, and who said tomorrow it will not be 
a Windows Xen host? Or even a Mac one?
