Hi Benjamin, 

I use XenCenter (in the Xenserver package) to access the VMs. So, no need to use XenClient. Is "local demand-paged execution of VMs" needed mainly for VMs which require heavy CPU/GPU cycles? I use XenCenter to access Windows XP VMs and the responses time is acceptable.

Hi Peter, 

XenServer is open source, but as far as I can tell, large pieces of 
XenClient are not. Olive supports local, demand-paged execution of 
virtual machines, which XenServer alone cannot do.
