hi all !
I would like to ask about something revolutionary !
Gradual improvement of an emulator to pravirtualizer.
That is - I want VirtualBox to be able to run as:
- emulator (bochs, qemu), (in case that host CPU is non-x86, or if I
don't want to install kernel modules on host, but keep it fully
- virtualizer (VMware, current implementation of VBox),
- paravirtualizer (like Xen)
The paravirtualizer state could be entered after installing guest OS
additions (by modifying kernel of Linux guest).
Then we will have 1 solution for different kinds of problems, that
will scale according to user's needs. I know that it sound a little
bit crazy, but having such a scalable engine with central GUI, and
adaptable to user's needs on demand has plenty of advantages.
What do you think of it ?
