Looks like fun. We have something similar here in the US. AMD will hold a public demonstration of its virtualization technology, currently called Pacifica, at LinuxWorld, set to take place April 3-6 in Boston.

The display will be made on Opteron PCs. Virtualization enables a single processor to act as if it were several CPUs which can run multiple operating systems simultaneously. Intel already sells some chips featuring the technology.

Well, they are good for different things, its pretty difficult to choose, each OS has its own forte in different areas.
