With only 20,000 lines of code, KVM is simpler to develop and
maintain than the 300,000-line Xen, he added.

"The best judge of the better hypervisor is the Linux
community," Schnaider said. "And the momentum is shifting
from Xen to KVM," with Red Hat and Ubuntu both announcing
adoption of KVM, he said.
"Xen's been a great solution, but KVM offers more innovation
and faster features," Cathrow said. "Technology moves forward,
and KVM is the future."
