1.  Because you are committed to Citrix (the company) technology solutions
2.  Because XenServer has been optimized to give XenApp a performance advantage (according to Citrix)
3.  Because, for some really odd and strange reason, XenServer has been certified to run under Hyper-V to optimize the performance of XenApp under Hyper-V
4.  Because you like rooting for the underdog
