Linux Linux Containers provide lightweight virtualization that lets you isolate processes and resources without the need to provide instruction interpretation mechanisms and other complexities of full virtualization. In this step-by-step tour of Linux container tools (LXC), the author introduces you to the Linux container tools and shows how to get up and running on them. This article will show you how Linux containers significantly lower the overhead of using true virtualization, while still providing isolation.

I've been waiting to hear about LXC for a while. I don't think it is on most people radar yet. Having containers upstream in the kernel will be a huge advantage, and will complement consolidation, full virt, and multicore systems all nicely.
