Technology Preview: CoreOS Linux and xhyve

xyhve is a port of bhyve, the FreeBSD hypervisor, to OS X. It is designed to run off-the-shelf Linux distros. We’ve made it possible to run it on CoreOS Linux so you can get the benefits of a lightweight Linux OS running under a lightweight hypervisor on Macs. It is now possible to launch a full local development or testing environment with just a few shell commands.
