Virtualization with KVM
With the introduction of KVM into the Linux kernel, future Linux distributions will have built-in support for virtualization, giving them an edge over other operating systems. There will be no need for any dual-boot installation in the future, because all the applications you require could be run directly from the Linux desktop. KVM is just one more of the many existing open-source hypervisors, reaffirming that open source has been instrumental to the progress of virtualization technology.
