I've been using FreeBSD on Citrix Xenserver with FreeBSD 8.[012] for a 
year now; in HVM mode. The only issue, other than the lack of support 
for xentools, is that in the earlier 8.x I had to manually set kern.hz 
low or the clock would eat too much CPU time in the VM (IIR, this was 
fixed in 8.2). I haven't had an opportunity to try FreeBSD as a PVM.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
