Parent article: Sysfs and namespaces
Roughly how close are we to having fully working, usable namespaces in mainline kernel?
By «fully working, usable» I mean a setup where you can run multiple fake operating systems under the same actual kernal, each one with their own init process, each one running a different set of services. Basically everything you do today using Xen, but at a higher speed and with lower memory overhead and without the option of running different kernel versions on different systems.
