Screw xen. kvm is where its at, if you have support for hardware
However, fwiw, xen works WAAAAY better in RHEL5, that's where our
engineering focus has been for the most part over the past few months.
That'll trickle down to FC6 and Fedora 7 soon though. Don't know exactly
how it compares to VMWare performance.
