Not alone, same situation for me.

I am using Xen aprox 2 years too on our university, but with end of F8 there
is not a fully functional Xen Dom0 and also DomU kernel for any stable

KVM is still not a replacement for paravirtualized machines and I think
fully virtualized KVM will be slower like a paravirtualized XEN.
Also I am missing some howtos for migration to KVM/xenner.
