    is there any advantage using one or the other? i prefer xen but is there any advantage with kvm being in the mainline?

    many people prefer kvm because the management is a lot easier (no special Hypervisor kernel needed, just a userspace tool, etc). Some people prefer Xen (type 1 Hypervisior)  because its performance "can" be slightly better compared to kvm (type 2 Hypervisor).

    Anyway with openQRM it is fully up to your personal preferences.
    Management capabilities for both (and other) Hypervisors are very similar in openQRM.

    .. personally I would vote for KVM ;)

    many thanks and have a nice day,
