The virtualization software is not up to par with Red Hat in regards to stability. Red Hat will be building Xen into a product in the coming months. Open source is great.


Taking the customer viewpoint, he said: "If the National Australia Bank wants to implement virtualization and it's not stable, you can imagine what they will tell us."
