So, do I understand this corret: RH6 won't have (native?) XEN support
anymore, which obviously means CentOS won't have it either?


Have anyone used both XEN & KVM before? What are your experiences with
either, in comparison to each other? We've been using XEN for about 4
years now, and only use CentOS as our server platform. I'd hate to
move to Debian or OpenSuse just for XEN, and I don't know KVM at all.
