Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Why Xen will deprecated? Is it to old?
I'm a little lost as to why people will switch to KVM or that the some OS force one type of software out in favor of another.
is it because Xen requires a specific kernel to run? 
Why so much 'hate' against Xen?
Perhaps it's my old school thinking but Xen works....  rather well and almost right out of the box for 98% of us. If I have to buy commercial (as I have done for some needs) to keep Xen then I will. Until KVM becomes more of a standard (which if OS keep shoving KVM the way they are...  it's going to happen) I will never switch.

As I understand the mail, it just seems that specific Dom0 kernel will
disappear in next Debien stable release.
For the time being, when you want to build a Debian Dom0, you have to
install a specific "Xen-enabled" kernel.
Starting Squeeze, all these functionnalities will be intergrated in the
default kernel.
