    Will they get everyone into it and then move on like with Clear Linux?

    I would be curious to know if this hypervisor flavor runs better on Clear Linux with its optimizations.

    One of the things I liked about Clear Linux was that the performance improvements could be leveraged in KVM.

      Very much doubt it.
      In CPU benchmarks, qemu can nearly reach bare metal performance.
      I/O bound applications are less likely to be influenced by Clear Linux optimization.

      That said, faster introduction of faster virtio interfaces (IO_uring) can make a measurable improvement.
