Default Xen or KVM ?

Hi everyone !

I'm going to install a new server *jaj* but I'm doubting on how to do the virtualization.
2 choices: Xen or KVM.

Xen:
----
I've used it before, I liked it, works great even though it's just para-virtualization and not hardware but then again it was taken over by Citrix, so now it's no longer open-source. If I run into an issue which I do not succeed in solving by myself, I'll probably end up paying for support.

KVM:
----
It's full hardware virtualization (yes my hardware supports this), never used it before though but I don't expect that to be an issue. It's open source so support would be widely available.


So I just wanted to know what everyone else thinks :-)


Shoot ! (but not me please !)
