I couldn't find anything on the net about M A Young, other than people
on the list recommending his kernels, so I don't know how trustworthy
it is.

CentOS 6 + XEN was a total mess and the CentOS crowd are very hostile
towards supporting that combination.

Does anyone use XEN 4.x on Debian, in production?
how well does it work?

OR, is XEN busy dying a slow death and I should rather look @ VMWare or KVM?
