Re: Xen

  Isn't Xen just a virtual machine like QEMU, VirtualBox, etc? What
  makes Xen special that people here talk about it while they don't talk
  about QEMU and VirtualBox?

With xen, it's reasonable to set up a machine as a dom0 and have a dozen
domUs on it, and to run the entire group in production for order of
years and depend on it (including booting from power-on with no human
present).  I have never had the impression that qemu/virtualbox was
suitable for that.
