Is UML even developed any more these days? Looking at its home page, it seems to talk about 2.4 kernels, like here: http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/dl-sf.html

Anyway, getting these isolated containers without having many copies of the kernel is probably a big enough performance enhancement to be worth the trouble.

UML is included in 2.6 kernels and seems to be actively developed, see also the UML diary[1].

Just look further down that page, it says to look at
http://www.user-mode-linux.org/~blaisorblade/
for 2.6.9+ updates (which it has through 2.6.15)
