This is to say that, like any other hypervisor, the hypervisor itself 
doesn't support X (or any other GUI), but that you can run X and a 
graphical desktop in a virtual machine and connect to it through X

I could be entirely wrong, but that is what I am getting from Peter's 
reply.  Have I understood correctly?
