Thursday 18 January — LCA — User Mode Linux

This is a very interesting technology. Not only does it make kernel development (and any other form of development where rebooting is a frequent occurance) much less painful, but it also has some interesting security applications. Apparently, a UML linux instance can boot in about 15 seconds, which is about how long it takes to get into the POST on my sparc 10… Me thinks I will have to play with it sometime real soon now.
