Thank you for your explanation. It is most helpful. To summarise what I
think is correct: One can run multiple LXC containers, each containing
an identical version of the main host operating system but processes are
separate from the others. KVM creates a type of 'container' allowing
different host operating systems to run in that container.

Can one run inside a LXC container a KVM ?

Can one run inside a KVM some LXC containers ?

Or is the simultaneous usage on the same machine of LXC and KVM mutually
exclusive or incompatible ?

Thank you again.

With best regards,
