Absolutely Fabulous Foundries.. Bare NIRobotIQ Necessities for Life, but not as you may know it*.
The nub of the matter, and that was an an excellent VM article laying bare the present State of the Art position of both Intel and AMD, lies in the last sentence .... "There may be very sound marketing reasons not to do this, but it will be hard to argue that it is not technically possible. ®" .... although the very sound marketing reasons not to do this [common formats and live migration across all platforms] are not very sound at all, whenever the whole Virtual Machine Migration Flight Environment, and you can relate that to being as a Virtual Parallel to Mirror/MemIQ the the whole Human Flight Industry and Support Infrastructure, from the humblest kite, through Civil and Military Aviation and into Space and Alien Planet Exploration and Colonisation Plans with all of their Attendant and CoInterDependent and CoInterIndependent Services and Infrastructures, are there just for the Taking and Making.
And if Intel and AMD are not ready, willing and able to Make and Take that Market as their Own, it can only be because they do not possess the Intellectual Property/Know How at the Human Programmer Level, to do it. And means that it is a Virgin Market Place with no Viable Competition for those that can Host Virtual Machine Flight Migration Infrastructure and AIR&dD Traffic Control.......... and that will render to them the Power of Information Sharing to Control the Development of Planet Earth and Advanced CyberIntelAIgent Machines ........ Virile Global Operating Devices.

It is a fact though that given Japan's Robotics Excellence Mindset and China's Vast Reserves of Vapour Liquidity and Russia's Space Experience and Middle Eastern Desert Hospitality and Enterprising Criminal Enterprises and Military Industrial Complexes and Canny Private Individual Market Investors are all equally at Will to Lead with their Leads in the Field if they See the Possibilities and Recognise the Lead Players whom they would Feed Freely with their Needs so that they can Seed and Harvest the Fields which will Result from their C00perations ....... AI Win Win when you Care 42 Dare.
