Of course _alpha_releases_ are broken!

How you get from there to "Fedora in general" is beyond me.

If you want a reliable system, use a Fedora release, not an alpha.

Kevin, allow me to be the judge of what works! My requirements are not yours.

The reason I ventured into alphaware was because the Fedora release did not support what I wanted to do. Last supported xen did not work, didn't look like working. It was promised to work in the next release, then not that but the next, and as of today there is no supported Fedora with working xen _host_ at all.

kvm is better, but not much. Last I tried, my guest silently hung.

On Windows I have several choices that are free of charge, and all work.

As for Fedora in general, I've had several releases fail utterly. Was it F9 with the 2.6.25 kernel? That would have been a complete flop had I not jumped up and down and shouted loudly, the kernel couldn't see my disk drives and my bug report got mismarked as not being kernel, it was alleged to be a duplicate of others on other, unrelated hardware etc etc.
