I'd be split between ESXi and VirtualBox, depending on the environment and
software requirements.

I haven't learned much about Xen is that, from what I remember, it requires
CPU virtualization instruction support, which a lot of my hardware does not.

" ' With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured,
the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all
irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie as wisdom and
warning... The first time any man's freedom is trodden on we’re all
damaged." - Jean-Luc Picard, quoting Judge Aaron Satie, Star Trek: TNG
