Well isn't that just fantastic.

KVM itself is heavily underrated. It's certainly on par with ESX or Xen, but it has the advantage that support is bundled with pretty much every Linux distribution currently out there by default. It's very fast...

The disadvantages are that the management tools are not as nice, desktop integration is poor, and it requires hardware support for virtualization.

Glad to see Redhat is fixing those issues.
