This article quotes Evan Leibovitch and Matthew Rice.

I posted my own note to http://www.digital-copyright.ca/node/2464

It is interesting, but as someone who is doing more and more Xen
work, one of the questions I often get asked is support to run legacy
Windows applications. While other virtualization technologies have
existed for a long time that can run multiple OS's, I believe there is a
demand from customers wanting to run both more efficiently as part of a
transition.

I don't personally support non-FLOSS for clients, but when I am
acting as a consultant rather than an implementor will recommend
virtualization as a very useful migration technique. In the past it was
always VMWare (Linux host). If VMWare and Xen agree on API calls for
virtualization optimization (the "pretend to be hardware" stuff is silly
and inefficient), and Xen supports virtualized Windows, then this will
be an even better option.

We'll see whether Microsoft will join in with VMWare and Xen in the
work that is underway for standardization for virtualization API's. I'm
obviously skeptical that they are interested in interoperability, rather
than just being interested in good press by "appearing" to be interoperable.
