As far as RedHat going KVM, yes, that's the virtualization technology
that RedHat has decided to pursue.  I don't know if that means that Xen
will be completely unavailable in RedHat, or if it just means that KVM
will be the one they push by default in new installations.  If you go to
the linux-kvm.org page, you'll notice the Redhat logo in the bottom
corner - they purchased the company Qumranet, which is the primary
funder of KVM development.
