Parent article: A look at Xen
For "utility computing" everyone already uses VServer ;-) (which "only" allows for contexts within the same Linux kernel but that suffices for a wide range of applications, hosting/testing/resource provisioning being the most evident)
It's in a different weight but still the same category of virtualization software, and I wonder why mention UML (which is basically dead to me) and Virtuozzo (which is proprietary) and forget of VServer.
PS: shameless plug: yes, ALT Linux has the support out-of-box with 2.4 release. :-)
