Xen Virtual Framebuffer

I posted my first version of a Xen Virtual Framebuffer today. Hopefully this will lead to lots of pretty GUIs that makes Xen as accessible to the average user as a product like VMware. It's amazing how much people love VMware. This weekend someone who I had never met before spent 10 minutes telling me how his company couldn't exist without it.

I think a large part of that is ease of use. He really didn't care if it was slow, or expensive, or whatever. It Just Works. It's a bit early for New Years resolutions, but focusing on ease-of-use is going to be mine.
