Thank you for the clarification about "no dom0 support in
FreeBSD 8.x as of now".
Yes, i did visit the wiki link couple of months ago and in fact
dropped a mail to Kip as well :) there was no response, guess he
i'd be thankful, if you could share your observations about the
. is dom0 support something that FreeBSD will target at some
point in time or would be happy to be domU ?
. there was some mention of vimage/bitvisor in one of the
slides (i think on scribd.com). So, is it that jails getting
extended to support virtualization+containers and thus a
entirely different approach which does not use Xen ?
. is it envisaged that a stable NetBSD dom0 implementation
would then be ported to FreeBSD (maybe) ?
Thank you for your time.
