Linux "Linux had always lacked a Open Source virtualisation technology in the same league as Solaris containers or commercial product like Vmware. That was until Xen came into the picture. Xen is an opensource virtual machine monitor for x86 that supports execution of multiple guest operating systems. Recently, I downloaded the Xen Live CD ISO image from their website and burned it on to a CD in order to give it a trial run. What follows below are my experiences in trying out this very promising virtualisation technology."

From the article...
"Needs a good amount of memory for it to be of any use to anybody. I would recommend atleast 1 GB memory even though with a little bit of tweaking like I did above, you might be able to use it with less than 256 MB RAM. Though its practical use will be limited."
