I think these stats are more or less correct. They are based on the 
downloads on openvz site only. For example, I don't see the Proxmox 
distribution, based on debian, which offers KVM and openvz as 
virtualization solutions, and at the very least is installed on 
thousands of hosts.

Proxmox uses the openvz kernel, which is based on the RHEL kernel, that 
is 2.6.32.

I use Proxmox at work, but I am using using only KVM VMs. I would like 
to see something like proxmox (bare metal installation, web 
management...), but developped in Python, and based on CentoS...
