Question: Why are we duplicating the sections? Under Quick Start we have Distribs that have a dom0 kernel out of the box, 3rd party kernels, and dom0 support in other OSes. Then under detailed info, we have a list of dom0 kernels, both OotB & 3rd party. (Also, the list appears to be quite old.) - Kyl191 02:36, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

It looks like the intention is to help both the impatient (with the quick start) and also those that want to dig into the details (with a more detailed guide). Do you have specific suggestions for improvements? - ToddDeshane 01:12, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Yeah... Split the 'detailed version' into it's own separate page. Then merge the "Xen dom0 kernels included in Linux distributions" (I'll call this S1 to save typing it out.) into "Linux Distributions which include a Xen Dom0 kernel"(S2) and "Linux Distributions which have a Xen Dom0 kernel provided by a third party"(S3) as appropriate.

For example, S1 mentions Ubuntu 8.04/8.10, but no mention of 11.10, which S2 has as an entry in the table. So merge the 8.04 mention into S2, and drop 8.10, since that wasn't a LTS. S1 mentions Gentoo, no mention in S2 or S3 despite, so add Gentoo into S2.

If no one's opposed/has better ideas, I'll do this myself tomorrow. (And, hey, if there's problems afterwards, we get to experience the awesome power of rollback.) -- Kyle 15:24, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
