Xen virtual machine monitor

Xen is a virtual machine monitor for x86 that supports execution of multiple guest operating systems with unprecedented levels of performance and resource isolation. It is Open Source software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

The performance impacts are quite impressive - almost as fast as running on the real machine!

Nice to see, that there's some more competition to VMWare, Plex86 and Bochs.
