    I have used both. I find VMware to be more mature and feature-rich. Xen is nice, but I just don't think it is playing at the same level that VMware is right now. There are a lot of comparisons on the web, search for "Xen vs VMware"

    When it comes to XenDesktop vs VMware View, XenDesktop wins hands down. Its a far better virtual desktop product. When it comes to XenServer v VMware ESX, I would have to say ESX takes it.

    Most all competitors are within %80 of functionality of ESX. Now when you throw ESX 4 into the mix its even better!
