[erlang-questions] Ling: Erlang over Xen, no OS required

Probably a silly question but...

How does networking work without an OS? Do you just assign an
interface in Xen that Ling knows how to manage directly? Is Ling
'basically' the standard VM with this and other facilities that the OS
would provide hacked on?

Why does Ling mean "no more out of memory crashes"? How does Ling deal
with using up its allocated memory?

Sounds cool! Is it open source?
