Virtualization means many things to many people. A big focus of virtualization currently is server virtualization, or the hosting of multiple independent operating systems on a single host computer. This article explores the ideas behind virtualization and then discusses some of the many ways to implement virtualization. We also look at some of the other virtualization technologies out there, such as operating system virtualization on Linux.

I know when you link to articles that sometimes the article’s actual subject matter is not described correctly, this is one of them. Based on taking the subheading from the title as opposed to the title gives the reader a false impression of what the article is going to contain.
I was expecting an article discussing the various forms of virtualization not limited to Linux (considering the article is written by an IBM employee I expected to read about LPARS, amongst other things).
While it is a good read, particularly the historical aspects of virtualization, it would be nice if the title used reflected what the article actually discusses.
