Still up

Still up, learning about Xen, a virtual machine monitor.

These benchmarks make it appear to be really fast.

Impressive stuff.

Like softwindows it used special drivers so that rather than having xen interrupt hardware calls to the driver this is handled automatically, as is having a speccially adapted kernel so that it is not having to intercept so many hardware calls, that hardware calls are instead going through xen.
This is all very clever stuff indeed.
