Gay Wee from 2007 CPE802 here,
I checked the wikipedia site on virtualization and found there are two forms of virtualization - resource and platform. Hence, I am wondering what is the deal with it. And, I checked info about Xen and it said it was using para-virtualization techique. So , again what is the deal with it.
