I would actually love that (just for the sake of learning) but me thinks were on
opposite sides of the pond:)

Well, I have had very good luck with both. The commercial Xen product from my
tests and real world deployments ran Windows slower than esx. Open source version
of Xen doesn't have stable hv drivers for windows so it's not even worth talking about.

I found Linux to run well on both and never found any issues with CentOS on esx.

Once KVM settles down, I will gladly have a learn at it but until then I keep playing
with Xen but run esx in production as I need Windows guests as well.
