Linux Recently a change in the Linux virtualization landscape has appeared with the introduction of the Kernel virtual Machine. KVM supports the virtualization of Linux guest operating systems - even Windows - with hardware that is virtualization-aware. Learn about the architecture of the Linux KVM as well as why its tight integration with the kernel may change the way you use Linux. Update: An interview with the KVM lead developer.

From what I understand, the AMD virtualization has all the functionality that the Intel stuff has, plus IOMMU support (not actually supported by any software though). So yeah, if you don't need to have the fastest or most energy-efficient processor, AMD is probably the best choice for playing with virtualization.
