Redhat's customers seem to be interested in...
More virtualization technology
Faster virtualization technology
More robust virtualization technology
Dumping windows in a shredder but still being able to virtualize it until then.
Easier to administer virtualization technology.
16gbyte and 32 gbyte ram chips are coming and so are 8 and 12 core cpu's.
You can't really go wrong or right with it. It's all pretty limited still.
They are integrating qemu with KVM into core 10 rapidly but seem to want to
support xen and virtualbox as well.
I could never get xen working and just found the big package collection called virtualization
and installed it. I could never get decent sdl->opengl graphics to work with qemu/kvm and it won't use floppies or even cd's/dvd's very well. It's roughly about as decent and as much trouble as running wine with the exception that you will never have decent graphics under it without huge overhauls on X,SDL,OpenGL, etc. All the sound and registery problems that you have with wine go away and all the graphics problems you don't have with wine hit you in the face. HARD.
