Like any organization the project has a mission statement. For those of you who have never seen it, I thought I would share it today. I am planning to add it to the website and thought a little extra promotion via the blog would be useful.

    • Core “engine” that is incorporated into multiple vendors’ products

    • Be first to exploit new hardware acceleration features
    • Help OS vendors paravirtualize their OSes
