If you've read the documentations and try some of them, like I
recommended before, you'd probably know the answer already :)

In short, there's no silver bullet. You can't have it all. For now anyway.
It's your choice whether to pick appliance-type vs distro-installed,
and newer-features vs rock-stable-and-proven.

Going forward, since xapi tools will be available and developed mainly
on debian/ubuntu, those would probably be the best choice. I wouldn't
hold my breath though, as (from experience) most likely it'd take
several years to get there.
