As far as I'm aware KVM never really featured as a choice for mass
deployment for hosting companies. Because of market size or control
panel offers I'm not sure.
We (LetsHost) offer both Xen and Virtuozzo but Xen wins hands down
each time and is definitely the platform of choice for most these
days. Happy to answer any Xen based Q's you might have or give you a
spin of a test machine so you can see if is the best choice over KVM /
