Part of the reason  why RHEL/Centos is rock solid is because it uses a
mature, well-tested version of Xen (3.1.+) while at the same time
actively maintaining it with bug fixes+kernel drivers. AFAIK no other
distro has that. It also makes it easy for virtualization control
panels (like HyperVM

SLE/Opensuse can be a good candidate, has newer Xen version, and seems
to be actively maintained.

Others have also use Debian, with the catch that i386 seems to be
buggier while amd64 seems stable (see list archive).


Hi Fajar,

I think the most stable system is the ones that run AMD.

The stock build of Xen with CentOS doesn't support FreeBSD properly, this is the only reason why I don't use that. Which version comes with Opensuse out-of-the-box?
