Automatic VM migration in a failure would best be achieved with a 2-node
cluster. Fedora 14 would be best there, as I believe most of the
developers of Pacemaker and RHCS use Fedora/RHEL. At the least, it's
pretty RPM-centric, then gets ported to .deb's.

That in and of itself is not always the best argument though. It was
enough to make me switch from Debian/Ubuntu to RHEL (CentOS)/Fedora though.
