No.  My "Big 4 Reasons" were those that where I saw full hardware 
virtualization providing a worthwhile feature that could not be 
accomplished by shared kernel para-virtualization, chroot, or just 
running directly on the base install.  To be fair, my primary use system 
is FreeBSD, where Jail para-virtualization has been part of the core 
system since 2000, and the init system knows how to behave when found in 
one.  I may have a skewed view on how well VServers and OpenVZ work, 
when they have never been merged into the upstream kernel.
