I`ve been testing Oracle-VM this day. Is there anyone out there who has tested both XEN-based solutions?
What are the main differences?

Not many XEN-Folks out there. So I have to answer this myself.
Oracle-VM is basically a RedHat clone, stripped down to the barest rpms that are needed to drive a XEN-system. It has an elder, Open-source XEN-version.
Atop of that a big GUI running as application on Oracle Weblogic, which in turn needs an Oracle-DB (XE will do).
Citrix sports its own GUI, based on the newest (non-open) xen-version.
