"On Monday, Fedora 13 was released and it was chock full of
features to appeal to the enterprise. Fedora 13 is Red Hat's FOSS
Linux distribution. One of the ballyhooed improvements to 13 is
virtualization, meaning KVM (and only KVM) these days for Red
"But there's good news/bad news for those of you who love
Fedora, but prefer Xen as your hypervisor. Bad news: Xen was
dropped from Fedora a few releases ago, says a Red Hat spokesperson
and it hasn't come back in 13. Good news: But Fedora 13 still
supports Xen guests and, better still, Xen.org hasn't abandoned
"While the details are sketchy, a Red Hat spokesperson told me:
"We still support Xen guests, but we dropped the original
hypervisor kernels several releases ago. There is experimental
support for the newer Xen hypervisor under evaluation, but it's not
part of Fedora 13 at this time."
