According to The Register Red Hat are replacing Xen with KVM in RHEL 6 !
One of the main goals for RHEL 6 was to make managing virtual servers as easy as managing physical machines, which means the bulk of the new software features are found in KVM. It also means that Xen is gone, though that’s hardly surprising since Red Hat purchased Qumranet – creators of KVM – back in 2008.
