    But no support for SPARC, POWER or MIPS.

      If this article was referring to ARM being a guest system (as well as host) then I see a pretty nifty idea for this. Imagine using xen's powerful pci-passthrough and send over a full-blown gpu to a virtual ARM setup? This assumes the host is x86 based but still.

        There used to be a version for POWER, but the branch was dropped due to lack of interest/maintenance.

          That doesn't make any sense, since Xen doesn't do cpu emulation. The host and guest must match architecture. There might be a way to run a virtual ARM machine in QEMU running under Xen somehow, but why would you want to do this anyway?
