Xen is a high performance paravirtualisating hypervisor. vmware fakes a real
PC - which is one hell of a trick to do efficiently and securely. Xen provides
a non-PC secure environment to guests which means it runs modified guests not
a generic x86 kernel. So it'll run the various BSD's patched with Xen support,
Linux and the like - much faster than vmware probably too - but it won't run
Windows.

There is a Windows port for Xen but Microsoft haven't released it
