It has the big advantage of being proven technology and does support
multiple kernel already.

I can only say that Xen looks like a good idea also - it's a VM system that doesn't really depend on host (and if you have hardware VM support) guest OS, and it even has some virtual system migration (over the network) built-in. Supporting Xen would automatically mean DFly can run more available guest OS-es, not only DFly.

On the other hand, while NetBSD has got Xen running relatively easy, FreeBSD is still struggling with it, with no usable results.


(go for Xen 3.0)
