Won't it be possible to adapt kqemu/qvm86/qemu to make it aware of the
Xen architecture (i-e, "porting Qemu to xen") Please note that this is
a purely rethorical question, as I don't know what it really involves.

On the other hand, Mark Williamson, one of the Xen dev pointed on Xen
devel ML on a very interesting document from Microsoft

It seems that MS will follow an approach similar to Xen for their
future virtualization technology (maybe because MS research was
involved in Xen's first steps)

We can dream and hope that it will be possible to adapt Xen to run MS
VM  (though I believe MS will do whatever is possible to make this
