For me at least 2.x supports the newer kernels, I haven't tried
vmware server on centos but the drivers wouldn't build for me
on Debian 5.0(even tried some 3rd party patches to no avail).
If it weren't for that then I'd probably still be on 1.x.

The one thing I do miss about 1.x is the remote console, the new
remote console in 2.x is web-based, which is kind of annoying.
