Now i understand more why Red Hat is touring (in Europe at least) and 
busy promoting Virtualization : it seems (if i believe the agenda : 
that oVirt is becoming the tool they want to promote (even more than 
libvirt in a standalone fashion) , at least that was my perception 
(especially when you read the event invitation email) .. let's see what 
the future will be but all people following the Fedora line already saw 
that kvm became prefered over Xen ... and from a Market-Share 
point-of-view it's also clear that RH had to push something new to 
compete against Xen (through Citrix XenServer), Vmware, and HyperV ...
