I'm not sure how much difference there is between GSX and VMWare workstation, 
but it's used at my work for testing purposes and I've had the host crash 
(full freeze, requiring hard reset) on occasion because of a problem in the 
This happens with only VMWare running.

I have seen some problems with Xen, but the performance of a single CPU system 
running Xen with 9 domains (not counting Domain-0) feels alot better then on 
a dual CPU system with twice the memory running VMWare.
The few problems I'm experiencing (LVM snapshots not being able to be removed) 
can be worked around while the developers manage to get this working.
