Is there any VM software that uses Intel's VT yet?


for those who don't know what VT is:
http://www.intel.com/technology/virt...tion/index.htm

it's basically virtualization at the hardware level. meaning realtime virtual machines.

my question is, is there ANY Linux/BSD/POSIX/Debian virtualization software solution or package that uses VT? I know about Parallells for Mac OSX but i'm not so much interested in purchasing a Mac. i'd really like to virtualize with this Core 2 Duo i just got, but there seems to be no Linux solution? please someone tell me i'm wrong...

absolutely, check out Xen, stock part of most distro's now... (and also KVM among others.)

thanks

i also noticed that VMWare uses VT technology but it's off by default as they say that VT is slower that software virtualization in some facets. But Parallells can run Windows in real time so i suppose that can't be true. perhaps their implementation was bad?
