Although openSUSE / Novell SLES are still currently supporting Xen.
But the attitude towards KVM makes me glad I decided to use NetBSD for
my dom0.

I think the biggest reason for the KVM push is the NIH syndrome very
much present in that community.

Keep in mind while NetBSD doesn't support SMP under Xen, a NetBSD dom0
CAN run non-NetBSD SMP guests!
