Hi Adrian:

Thank you for the clarification about "no dom0 support in 
FreeBSD 8.x as of now". 

Yes, i did visit the wiki link couple of months ago and in fact
dropped a mail to Kip as well :) there was no response, guess he
was busy.

i'd be thankful, if you could share your observations about the
following:

 . is dom0 support something that FreeBSD will target at some
   point in time or would be happy to be domU ?

 . there was some mention of vimage/bitvisor in one of the
   slides (i think on scribd.com). So, is it that jails getting
   extended to support virtualization+containers and thus a
   entirely different approach which does not use Xen ?

 . is it envisaged that a stable NetBSD dom0 implementation 
   would then be ported to FreeBSD (maybe) ?

Thank you for your time.

thanks
Saifi.
