  You've been smoking something really mind altering, and I think you
  should share it.

  x86 virtualization is about basically placing another nearly full
  kernel, full of new bugs, on top of a nasty x86 architecture which
  barely has correct page protection.  Then running your operating
  system on the other side of this brand new pile of shit.

  You are absolutely deluded, if not stupid, if you think that a
  worldwide collection of software engineers who can't write operating
  systems or applications without security holes, can then turn around
  and suddenly write virtualization layers without security holes.

  You've seen something on the shelf, and it has all sorts of pretty
  colours, and you've bought it.

  That's all x86 virtualization is.


The history show that Theo de Raadt was right about virtualization?
