For a virtual machine with guest OS — Windows which virtualization to choose? XEN or KVM?

With windows will run a completely different task.
Interested in minimal losses in virtualization.
KVM or XEN in my case is better suited? or not much difference?

On a dedicated server, you can install any linux or Xenserver 6.5(6.2).

KVM, no questions asked. Xen — party stuff working below level linuxoveho kernel and grooving it, and the KVM works directly in the kernel. Why do you need extra padding? From the point of view of efficiency in this case there is no difference.
And KVM virtualization using proxmox is better to raise? Or is it just a shell and does not matter? - sarina_La commented on July 9th 19 at 13:02
: proxmox shell, I prefer virt-manager standing on my local machine and ssh to the server so I can access all my server with KVM.
But if you're under Windows, it is put on the server Proxmox and control via web browser, Proxmox also convenient. - Deshaun.Skil commented on July 9th 19 at 13:05

KVM on top of the Zen dies

Tried both, prefer KVM. XEN seemed obvious - some things should simply work - they just don't work :( After repeated attempts to have one comp FreeBSD and Windows, ends every time the same mate :( XEN was forever pushed into the far corner.
you just have not learned to cook Xen, very competent platform for certain purposes. - sarina_La commented on July 9th 19 at 13:06
Key phrase - "for certain purposes". Yes. If You are a Corporation with hundreds or thousands of employees, who all have laptops, and that should be coming to work to a corporate environment (and on servers You have a fat storage space machine images for all of them) - then perhaps You're right. But for the task "to keep two cars on one desktop so they both worked simultaneously and switch between them" no Xen, but KVM solves easily. - Deshaun.Skil commented on July 9th 19 at 13:09
