I really have to beg to differ about "easier to use", for two reasons:
1. Xen's network subsystem bypasses netfilter.
(One could argue there's a benefit to protecting public
bridged guests with netfilter, but I think from a philsophical
viewpoint, public bridged guests really should have unfettered
2. Setting up a public bridge is a snap in Xen. In KVM, it is
massively complex (i.e., virt-manager can't do it), and
requires tools (tunctl) Fedora doesn't even provide:
IMHO, KVM's big win is that it doesn't interfere with ACPI functions,
so features like CPU frequency throttling work even if you're running
a KVM guest.
But man oh man, is public bridge networking in KVM a nightmare...
