I have no problem with a "better" solution than Xen because to be honest
it's a pain sometimes but at this point virtually all enterprise VM
deployments are either based on VMware ESX or Xen (Xenserver, VirtualIron,
Amazon AWS, Oracle, Sun SVM, Redhat and Suse). This tide will change as KVM
becomes more dominant in the VM space but I don't see that happening for a
while. I'm also a bit skeptical as to how well a fully virtualized system
(KVM) will run in comparison to a fully paravirtualized system (Xen PV). I
have a system with 41 VMs on it and I'll be having 2 weeks of planned
downtime in the near future. I'd like to see how these systems run under

Now they have two problems.
