Would it be valid to interpret your email that vbox is likely more
concentrating on virtualisation of Desktop-driven guests and less likely on
server-type guests?
Because talking of users not updating kernels can only mean classical
distribution users that simply don't replace with stock kernels.
On the other hand we experience very bad network performance on multi-cpu
guests mostly being servers, whereas sinle cpu guests are a lot better (a lot
means at least factor 5 in bandwidth).
