VMWare is a machine emulator. Operating systems running under VMWare

Xen is an operating environment. Operating systems running under Xen
have to be aware that they are running under Xen.

Xen actually has to run two operating systems, one serving as the
master and the other as the 'guest' OS, and this compounds the
number of potential bugs you might run into a lot more then a machine
