  1. Hello
  2.  
  3. I would like to point out conclusively that bhyve is a type 1 or native hypervisor. It's in the same league as KVM, ESX/I, XEN and Hyper-V. This is because it doesn't run atop the OS as an application (VirtualBox, Parallels) but IS the OS.
  4. Many people would argue that it isn't truly "bare-metal", however the "fatness" of the OS is a red herring. It's called bare metal because the hypervisor is running on the metal, not the VMs.
  5. I know the front page of bhyve.org calls it a type 2. I don't know what could have possessed them, but the whole world just repeats the same info without examining the facts first.
