i would be careful compare 2005/2006 with now for a lot of reasons

* before vSphere 5.0 VMkernel was a 32bit kernel while capable
   running 64 bit guests with 10 GB RAM but still a lot of magic

* 2005/2006 a large part was binary translation while now
   you need a x86_64 host with VT-support

* in 2006 vmxnet3 was not available not was it for a long time
   included in the mainline linux kernel while now any paravirt
   drivers are in the stock kernel
