When you talk about recent processors in the Intel or AMD realm, do you, or
does anyone else on this list, have practical experience with the
virtualization extentions on HP or Dell or other Quad Xeon or Multi-CPU AMD
boxes ?

I don't know exactly what to ask in terms of best bang for the buck for
processor(s) speed or memory installed, yet I would be interested in hearing
what others are using and how well you are enjoying virtualization on the

Using XEN or Vmware or Both?
