back to article Xen project goes for VM Hyperlaunch with version 4.17

Version 4.17 of the Xen project's eponymous hypervisor has debuted, bringing with it the first look at Hyperlaunch capabilities that allow the creation of multipole VMs on startup.

    Not the first time Citrix ***d up

    Where "***d up" means "dropped the ball" for Americans reading.

    Buying into leading edge cool stuff and burying it is what they are good at. Why? Does no one look at strategy and say "Well that didn't make money. Let's try something different."

        This is so funny that you are here for some years and just broadcasting fake news against the Xen Hypervisor. You don't know that KVM is just a type-2 hypevisor like the VirtualBox and Red Hat tricking customers and selling it :D

        Enjoy from your Linux module ;)
