Dothebart: I run Debian as well and find it fits the bill for me on swag build outs.  Thanks for the outgesourced.org tip. I did not know about that repo.  The Slack you visited in the 90s would still be familiar to you today :-)

outgesourced.org is my server ;-)

so, its running stable. Some of the vservers have testing...

most of my other desktopish installation @work etc. run testing.

Hmm. I've traditionally panned Xen and XenCenter because I always considered it a detour on the road to KVM being the ultimate in open source virtualization.
But I'm doing some work with it now, and so far I'm actually liking what I see.

Right now it strikes me as a better VMware than VMware.

Yeah, I dunno, it does seem like if you're going to build a hypervisor, you might want it to be as lean and mean as possible...

xen performance may always suffer from RPCing some of the essential system services to dom0 though eh?

well, I guess you can save these 1- 15% loss by just using lxc / docker...

All other things being equal, I'll still choose KVM. Its architecture (along with that of libvirt) are built on principles of sound computer science. In this particular case I am evaluating XenServer as an alternative to VMware.

LXC is a non starter if you have to be able to support both Linux and Windows guests.

Not that it matters, but I have been running W2K8 and W2K3 instances on Libvirt / KVM for years now (3+).  Now that the disk IO is catching up, I will run more :-)  I find that the Linux kernel does a fair job of splitting up resources, that I don't need to do much tuning.

aaaaaaand our non-friends at Ubuntu have done it again.

[ http://www.ubuntu.com/cloud/tools/lxd ]

Evidently the standard LXC and Docker frameworks aren't good enough for them, so they're starting their own.

That's OK...WebCit doesn't support displaying https URLs for clicking, either...but, since Uncensored! shut down as of midnight, last night, I guess I should shut down DP2, too. ;-)

I have finally accepted that I am unlikely to need the Windows XP recovery partition on this 2008-era netbook, so I have wiped the drive for a fresh install of the latest Linux Mint.

Linux "anything" is the absolute best thing to do with any laptop older than 5 years. You've given your laptop - literally - a new lease on life.

The only thing that will eventually do you in is a physical hard disk failure, or breaking the screen, or needing a new keyboard. The screen and keyboard are easy to handle for at-home use - just use an outboard screen and monitor. I do that in Auburn where I visit, and the laptop sits off to the side, "out of sight out of mind", so when I sit at the desk to use it, it's the same (to me) as if it were a desktop machine. Runs Win7 - but has a linux setup using VirtualBox - and I swear the linux install under the virtual machine is faster than Win7 running "native."

In many ways it's just because linux handles things ***much*** smarter than WinBlow$...

My 2005 laptop gets slow when it tries to do too much with Mint. I tried Puppy
Linux and it was decent but because I had trouble with libraries. I couldn't run the programs I wanted to run.
Dispite puppy help searches none of the suggestions worked. feh. So I will try Mint again but I need to find
what causes the slow downs. At first I thought it was Mate but I think it is when the system tries to do a
bunch of stuff. It becomes unuseable.

It was running Mint Debian Edition earlier, so it is not much of a transition. I had mucked some things up and finally got around to a fresh start. I used to dual boot to do Army things, but I have mostly given up on that with the laptop.

My XP install was very lean and very fast, owing to years of knowing what you can safely turn off or remove. It is remarkably secure if you don't need it to network with any other Windows devices. Mint is not so lean not fast, but much More pleasant to use.

unless you pay the protection money for the AV, then no windows is fast anymore.
