- if bhyve fits your needs, why not run FreeBSD and bhyve?

I use Linux (+ qemu and kvm) and FreeBSD (with bhyve) depending what OS
between these allows me to perform a task faster and better.

- Look at Xen history, you'll see that it started in the mid 2000s.

I like Xen,I've used it for several months,but then I stopped using it
because on Linux I prefer qemu and kvm and on FreeBSD no one is interested
in maintaining Xen anymore. Everyone says that it is superated.

- And then, why not vmm, openBSD's virtual machines ?

I tried it,but I prefer bhyve. It has more functions and above all,the
passthru of my graphic card works on a Linux vm. vmm does not support it.

- But I think xen will run on some older hardware that kvm doesn't.

I think that bhyve is better than xen. So on FreeBSD I use bhyve and on
linux I use qemu+kvm,just because I have a recent hardware. On the old PC I
have installed FreeBSD and I use bhyve.
