Hi all!
What are the differences between xen shipped by citrix

This is something you need to purchase by paying citrix for it. Citrix would support it and you don't have to bother about sending mails to mailing lists. Additionally this has a management interface (proprietary) which can be used to manage virtual machines.

and the free edition that I can download from here http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/srg/netos/xen/ <http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/srg/netos/xen/> ?

This is open source and supported by community. This doesn't come with a management interface by default, but if you use fedora or other distros you can use the tools shipped with the distribution - like virt-manager and virt-install - to manage the virtual guests.


ok, but what about performance? Such as network or disk I/O, cpu and memory access?
What is the real value of the PV drivers that Igor mentioned?
