There is pretty much zero chance that Fedora 10 will include a Xen
Dom0 host. While upstream Xen developers are making good progress
on porting Dom0 to paravirt_ops, there is simply too little time
for this to be ready for Fedora 10. So if you need to use Fedora 10
as a host, then KVM is your only viable option at this time. If
you can wait for Fedora 11 (or use RHEL-5 / CentOS-5) then Xen may
be an option for you. I'll let other people comment on the pros/cons
of Xen vs KVM outside the kernel availability issue.
