I am still waiting for/to hear more details. At some point in the
future, I would like to do at least a couple of of different operating
systems in a virtualized environment, using Solaris as a host system.
Work also appears to be moving along swiftly with the Xen hypervisor on
Solaris also. From an earlier note from Craig (see at the bottom), it
appears that this technology, at least from a networking perspective, is
primarily focused on windows.
From a windows perspective, I have only one application that I need to
run, but have other applications that I need to run from other operating
At this point, might a planned course of attack be to use this
technology (Win4Lin/Solaris) to get windows operational, or, if a person
was planning to make uses of Xen, be to install all virtualized
operating systems under Xen?
Ivar, you have mentioned that this will be available for windows 2000
and xp guest. Where can I read more about this? I went tho the win4lin
home page ( http://www.win4lin.com/ ) and nothing is mentioned about
Solaris, even after using their search.
