Re: [Xen-users] Intel VT, Linux & Windows XP

not if they both are running as unmodified guests and you are using both with SDL because you only can use one client with a local SDL-screen.

But this is not a good option anyway, because Linux runs better as paravirtualised guest and you can access this Linux with ssh, exported X11 or VNC (if installed in Gnome).

And Windows as unmodified guest is not very good usable with a local SDL-screen because it is completely unaccelerated, VNC is not an option too because keyboard and mouse are working quite bad. The best thing to use Windows is using the RDP-protocol, then the performance is quite good and Windows is usable, mostly like it works f.ex. with Citrix!

The graphics-adapter are only virtual and exported via VNC or SDL.
