[Xen-users] Looking for GUI tools

Hi list! I've been using XEN Source 3.4 with Gentoo Linux >= 2.6.32
dom0 for over a year with very little complains. It has sweet
performance and works perfect for our needs. But our needs are
changing and so is our datacenter, which is getting bigger and wider.
So what I'm looking for is a GUI tool to start administering domUs.
That's sort of basic maybe, but it'd be nice to start pointing at some
Cloud solution too. We always keep FOSS as much as possible (we are
proudly clean and safe from Micro$uck products as of today).
I've been looking around the wiki page in my search, which is of great
help, and this I've come up with:

Unmaintained "Management Tools":
* Xen Cloud Control System (last release: December 13th, 2010)
* Xen Orchestra (last release: June 14th, 2010)
* OpenXenManager (last release: December 2nd, 2010)
* XenWebManager (last release: January 2nd, 2011). I have to add that
the link in the wiki redirects to OpenXenManager's site. Google found
it for me :)

So we end up with two choices: Zentific and ConVirt Open Source.
In the categoty "Cloud Orchestration Software" I found the three of
them (CloudStack, OpenNebula and OpenStack) up to date.

So, if you have experiences on any of them I would really appreciate
that you share them. I'm really looking for a starting point and there
are many choices. Let me see if I understand correctly: "Management
Tools" manage one host at a time and the "Cloud Orchestration
Software" manage the whole Cloud, right?

I've seen a recent post in the list asking for assistance in the
layout and Florian Heigl made a recommendation on using OpenNebula.

I've been researching in the project's pages and they all have nice features.
