I think the heavywheight is trying to do a VMWARE, and the lightwheight is trying to be a developement tool.

What advantages would the lightweight (Linux only) version have over say "User Mode Linux" (UML) then? I see that UML also does some "virtualization" of hardware and runs its VM as a process under the real OS, perhaps without all the fancy tricks provided by the Plex86 VM's. Is there some overlap in these two implimentations, and if so, could the two projects somehow compliment one another enought to join forces? Or are they both targeting at a completely different set of "development" purposes? Security wise is the lightweight VM somehow safer than UML?
