It's certainly in the silicon.  But it needs for Intel to enable it, and for 
there to be a compatible BIOS.  I think the latter two are still in doubt...  
It'll definitely be enabled in later Yonahs though.

Depends what revision of 3.0 you use.  There are fixes and improvements all 
the time in the -unstable branch.  VT support is still maturing, but it does 
run test suites stably under XP these days.  Performance optimisation and 
fixing some corner cases is still ongoing.


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
