SWSoft investment by Intel Capital (put code into Xen)

Talking about the XenSource company:

Xen co-developed by Cambridge and Intel Research:

This thing is *far* from being "just a cool open-source project".

This has Intel's hand all over it.  In addition, it touches hardware. 
Intel can defend their turf with both hardware *and* software patents.

Way too much money is floating around this to not at least be a little 

It's a cool idea, but I wouldn't abandon the pure open-source efforts
