Yea, but the reason we made a multi-boot system at work was to compare
the performance of real hardware to virtual machines. Running testbeds for
for our tools (especially the debugger) seems to disclose lots of funny
behavior (especially on what is now an older version of xen). KVM seems
to be much less screwy. I definitely think upgrading the old xen machine
to a newer OS and kvm will be something we want to do soon.
