Do you need something that the 1.x series won't do?  If something works and 
serves your purpose it doesn't matter if it is discontinued or not.

The other option is to run ESXi and move anything you were running on the host 
to a guest.  You'll get better performance that way but you need to run the 
converter tool on some other machine to get the images copied in.
