"Citrix will not, however be open-sourcing XenServer. While Xen, the hypervisor itself, is open source, XenServer, according to Citrix, contains proprietary code that makes it much easier to setup and maintain and is a much more polished and reliable virtualization platform. In the past, XenServer 5 pricing started at a suggested retail price of $900 per server, regardless of how many CPUs or sockets were on the system. Starting soon, XenServer 5 won’t cost users a penny.
