Xen Involvement - I started using Linux in 1994, first on my personal desktop computers and a couple of years later also on servers. I've been working with Linux and UNIX servers ever since. When virtualization on x86 became possible it introduced a lot of new possibilities. I found Xen in 2003, during the early Xen 1.x days. I've been using Xen actively since version 2.0.
Full opensource software stack including the hypervisor, operating system and applications gives you a lot of freedom and a chance to improve things yourself, innovate and create new cool solutions easily.
I've been trying to give back to the Xen and opensource communities by testing Xen releases and patches on my systems, helping other people on the mailing lists and on the IRC channel and lately contributing some patches to Xen and to Linux kernel.
Thoughts on Xen - Xen has proven to be stable, secure, high performance, opensource baremetal hypervisor, running on multiple hardware platforms and architectures including x86, x86_64, IA64, and ARM. Xen supports all the common operating systems.
Xen pioneered lightweight paravirtualization, and also supports the latest hardware virtualization features available in the new CPUs and chipsets.
Xen Cloud Platform is the next step for Xen, moving forward from only provisioning the core hypervisor to providing a full virtualization platform.
