Indeed, you can do virtualization in software -- what's commonly called para-virt these days. This is what VMware was doing years ago. I read quickly and made the mistaken assumption that if you were asking if a given processor could do virtualization that you meant full hardware virtualization. Otherwise, the answer is that any halfway modern system can do virtualization, even if it's only para-virt. -- Todd OpenPGP -> KeyID: 0xBEAF0CE3 | URL: www.pobox.com/~tmz/pgp ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you. -- Will Rogers.
