Hi All,


I’m curious as to the feasibility of running Xen on my laptop. I have a Dell E6500 with an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, and an Intel C2D P8400. I’d like to be able to passthrough the Nvidia card to a Windows based VM when I want to so that I can use windows based apps on one of the ctrl+f7/f8/f9 consoles but still have a *nix as the host OS to do my general day to day work. Is this even feasible?
