What is Xen

What is Xen? When I used OpenSuSE to try it out, there was some Xen kernel?

I think the best thing for you too do is to google "xen" and read up about it yourself.

Sorry if this seems a little unhelpful but you will find out more, and in a quicker way, by googling everytime you have a problem, and posting here only if you cannot find anything on a search engine. This has been my personal experience anyway.

Xen is a system by which operating systems using a special, modified kernel can run at near native speeds on top of another OS which also has a patched kernel.
