[Mono-dev] VMWear player for Mono development

Hi Miguel,

I would love to see a Xen DomU guest image as well.  I realize that VMWare
has a free offering, but it is not open source.  Xen's hypervisor was built
into Microsoft's Virtualization server.  It is part of OpenSuse and the new
Linux kernel has a lot of it baked in.

Mono should run on a better VM player i.e. Xen running with Dom0 host such
as OpenSuse, Fedora, Gentoo, etc.  I realize that there is a documentation
effort, but I strongly believe that increasing the Xen community can do
nothing but good for Mono.  Xen is much more efficient with memory and it
would be a nice fit for the Novell/FOSS marketing machine.
