Bit of a chicken/egg problem, but I intend to try every test release via
a xen instance if it's possible.  As this technology moves forward, I
think it's going to become more and more common for people to use
virtual machines for initial testing.  Not many folks have spare
machines laying around and xen, kvm, openvz, vmware,
$virt-tech-of-the-day make it "easy" to test some of the new shiny stuff
while keeping their machines stable.
