Not entirely true: with new versions of Xen combined with certain CPUs
(Intels today, AMDs some time this year), you can have full
virtualization.  People are running Windows along side Linux.

There's a higher overhead in running that way, so it is preferred to run
with a Xen-aware OS.

Also note: I haven't tried this myself yet.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
