I’ve been wanting to explore the OS-level virtualization space again. For a long time I was running linux-verser on a number of servers. I switched to Xen because I really like the aesthetic of being able to run each virtual machine with it’s own kernel. But I wonder if this is not too heavy a solution when all you really want is a super-chroot. LXC has a lot of support since it’s in the kernel but it’s difficult to tell how big a community there is. Thus far I’ve been pretty disappointed with LXC and I’ve had trouble getting information. For example there is very little information as to whether capabilities are changed in different kernel versions. Here are some of the major difficulties I’ve found so far:
