Killer application for 2006?

Jack Loftus dreams that Xen will be killer application. I do not think so. Xen is nice piece of software with several problems. The most important one is that it is not well integrated into the operating system (in terms of tools, etc.).

If I could afford to dream, I'd like to see the VMM built into PC hardware *directly*. Big servers already have it and almost every killer application is an unusual usage of old, known, good technology. Let's try it! Why should I have KVM switch and simulate this behavior for the end-user?

This would be my killer application for 2006! -----
