Submission + - Linus thinks virtualization is "evil" ( 1

crdotson writes: "Linus said in an interview that he thinks virtualization is "evil" because he prefers to deal with the real hardware. Hardware virtualization allows for better barriers between systems by running multiple OSes on the same hardware, but OS-level virtualization allows similar barriers without a hypervisor between the kernel and the hardware. Should we expect more focus on OS-level virtualization such as Linux-VServer, OpenVZ, and LXC?"
