Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Heading in a different direction from its main rivals, Ubuntu Linux will use KVM as its primary virtualization software. Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server both use the Xen virtualization software, a 'hypervisor' layer that lets multiple operating systems run on the same computer. In contrast, the KVM software runs on top of a version of Linux, the 'host' operating system that provides a foundation for other 'guest' operating systems to run in a virtual mode.

KVM is still quite broken

Is that a smart decision? Windows 2003 does not work properly (crashes KVM on every Windows boot) and Ubuntu 7.04 and 7.10 cannot be installed without modifying the ISO image. KVM needs a lot of love before you can use it in production.
