TechBookReport on 'User Mode Linux'

TBR writes "Virtualization (or virtualisation depending on which side of the Atlantic you're on), is big news these days, hardly a day goes by without some announcement of a new product, service or improved hardware or operating system support. While VMware still leads the way, there are plenty of other well known contenders in the market, such as Microsoft's Virtual Server/PC, Sun's Solaris Containers and Xen for the Linux world. However, Xen isn't the only virtualization product available for Linux, a lesser known option is User Mode Linux (UML - no relation to the Unified Modelling Language). This book, written by UML developer Jeff Dike, is the authoritative source on all things UML."
