Xen installed from Live Cd as an option

Registered by Miguel Mayol on 2007-11-04

If ubuntu is installed with XEN as an option, everybody that uses windows and Linux in the same machine would like to have Xen and switch between OSs. This would help for gamers for`laying each game over XP, vista or Linux )the best performance one for each) but web surfing, mail, office, multimedia, P2P and others would surely ised in Ubuntu. this would contain GUIs for configure an add sytems to Xen and a utility for making a ghost for the windows used and port it to Xen wiith GUO easy use for normal users. And some agreement for being installed as default system with Vista (under Xen) and some marketing - Xen Ubuntu vVsta dual system - or something like that. Of course a little program in the live CD must detect VT hardware (or not) and benchmarks between native and Xen windows would be done., But as antivirus for wondows under Xen can be non resident (only some scans) Xen Windows without resident antivirus must be benchmarked too vs Win native and Xwn win with resident antivirus.

This would help in a short term MS for gamers transition VS Vista and XP (many have two of them), but if it have relative success cam make MS windows instad of a system only an interface for playing some games, but Ubuntu (or the X distro that become the leader of this tech) for internet software, and some motherboards, may install a XEN ubuntu for avoiding virus - ASUS made one with linux on the mb -.

I think XEN is now for advanced users, but with a little GUI work can be the real future for PCS with multiple systems, even installed for new desktops / laptops.
