Earlier this month we published Intel Core i7 Linux benchmarks
that looked at the overall desktop performance when running Ubuntu

Linux benchmarks when testing out the KVM hypervisor and Sun xVM
VirtualBox. In this article we are providing a quick look at Intel's
Nehalem virtualization performance on Linux.
