Hi All,

I have a 2011 MacBook Pro with 16gb of RAM and 1.5tb. (I took out the optical drive and striped together 2 x 750gb.)

I write code, C++ and I am not in a position where I need to run Windows, Linux and OS X, various versions.

I have read about Xen-hypervisor before.

My questions:
1. How is the compatibility on a macBook Pro? I can get a live-cd and try this out.

2. With VM's running, would I just use them on the MacBook Pro like I normally would (like you can a VMWare virtual machine)?

3. What about closing the lib and going home? Is there suspend on the hypervisor? Would I need to suspend each VM, then close the lid or is that really not supported.

4. Can one extend Xen so that I could scp into the hypervisor and backup the vm's if I needed to?

I'd love to hear thoughts.
