KVM in Linux 2.6.20
For those living under a rock that haven't heard about the kernel virtual machine in Linux 2.6.20, in early January Phoronix will be offering a first look at KVM in the Linux 2.6.20 release candidate. Some of the possibilities being thrown around at this time include a comparison against Xen and/or a comparison on different Intel and AMD processors with their virtualization technologies.
Feel free to voice your thoughts on what you would like to see.

And, BTW, 2.6.20-rc3 has a serious bug in the CFQ I/O elevator, it doesn't merge read requests at all, so disk is very slow! It has been fixed slightly after rc3 came out, so rc4 should be okay...

Hi, I'm a Swedish IT journalist. I read Michael's article about KVM and is interested in more opinions about KVM, especially from Swedish users. What do you think about KVM in comparison to Xen and VMware's and Microsofts efforts in the field? What's the potential for KVM?
Any chance of getting a VMware run included? I'd do it myself but I lack a AM2 or 775 socket to check it.
It's on the long TODO list.
