With Linux 3.0 the Xen Hypervisor now can run natively with Dom0

“The Xen hypervisor now can run natively with Dom0 (Domain 0) privileges. This gives it, like Linux’s Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), the ability to work at the lowest possible level of the Linux kernel. In practical terms this means Xen virtual machines should run faster.”

wow, virtualization i love it…
