     The Paravirtualization not going to die, is a very optimal
virtualization solution.
     If you think about hardware Virtalizacion trying to do what makes
paravirtualization. (same concept realized by hardware).
     Besides the I/O driver paravirtualiacion this in hardware
virtualization. (Why you think it is)
    That is, if you like performance of native hardware, reduce
layers, that makes paravirtualization.
    There are many ways to use paravirtualization.
