But it is still software virtualization? Last time I checked you could 
only run the same OS in the zones as on the host. Has that changed?

I much prefer a hardware hypervisor architecture. Let the hardware 
manage your virtual machines. More robust, faster and it puts management 
of hardware where it belongs. Too bad no-one makes hardware hypervisors 
for x86 hardware, afaik.

And if it turns out that there is a God, I don't believe that he is evil.
The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
