    Xen can already run Windows, though due to (Windows's) licensing
    restrictions it can not be distributed (the modified version that can be
    run that is). With the release of Intel's Vanderpool and AMD's
    Pacifica technology Xen will be able to support running unmodified
    operating systems, though you will still need a processor that
    supports one of those technologies.

    Xen may be able to run Windows as a guest operating system
    but can it be run on Windows? Meaning can it be installed
    and run on a Windows os in order to run eg. Linux as a
    second operating system?
    If not then my feature request is that it should be made
    to work on Windows as well.
