Yeah, it's pretty much the dopest thing I know of.

I'd say you're either brave or insane, depending on whether you're running on 2.0 or unstable.

2.0.7. Brave I guess.

Is the code not that good? I was impressed how easy it was to setup, and how polished the tools were. I was anticipating much worse.

The code is pretty good, but unstable (soon to become 3.0) is in a constant state of flux and breaks daily. 2.0.7 is actually fairly stable, people have had uptimes of upwards of 180 days with the 2.0 series.

Unstable unstable? Crazy! I guess Debian's tainted everybody's concept of the word "unstable".

Xen is really cool. I've been doing some work with automating Xen lately and I love it.

I'm surprised (in a good way), that Free Software beat the Patent Pushers to a truly good solution on virtualisation. Virtual PC drives me nuts, and is only scriptable on the Mac. VMWare's very good at what it does, but I can't speak for it's scriptability because I've not done anything on that front with it yet.
