FreeBSD "The first of the test builds for the FreeBSD 8.1 release cycle is now available for amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, pc98, and sparc64 architectures. Files suitable for creating installation media or doing FTP based installs through the network should be on most of the FreeBSD mirror sites by now."

FreeBSD as a Virtualization host

I always thought FreeBSD would make a great Virtualization host. I have used FreeBSD for most things but I always found there was something missing (like Flash) that needed me to boot into windows or Run Linux emulation, etc.

Instead, if we have a rock solid virtualization foundation then we can run the missing features on a virtual machine while at the same time increasing the user based of FreeBSD and hence getting more developers to release for the platfrom natively.
