yea - that's when the meeting with vmware came to a end.  it was kinda
akward to say the least :)  fwiw i don't think moving the bits from one
hypervisor to another is the hard bit (infact we were using netapps and
fcp or iscsi for our block devices so that bit just worked).  i think
they had some "magic" on the windows controller that syncronized the
hypervisors to do the live migration.

i dunno i kinda stopped listening to them when they told me i needed a
win2k server to make this all work.  it wouldn't have been such a huge
issue but i already had it working with rhel5, xen and lib-virt.
