A question that was asked a lot was
'what is the difference to [Xen|UML|VMware|...]'
I need not answer this question on this list. We were able to
distinguish ourselves and got a lot of people interested enough
to say they'll try it out.

A point that we could almost always drive home is that VServer
distiguishes itself from other solutions in being so simplicistic
and always on top of new kernel development that it can easily be
combined with other applications:
  - combination with drbd to gain failover
  - combination with multi-seat technology to gain hardened multi-seat

Sorry, can't say none about that. I met the guy who's writing it
and I hope he'll read this and come forward.
