Ubuntu, if you want to use Xen, has a package you can install.  The current
8.04 server kernel for Xen (2.6.24-21-xen) works fine as far as I can tell.
I do not know about KVM.  As for Debian, http://wiki.debian.org/Xen seems to
indicate no issues.  Once again, I do not know about KVM.

That was the only Windows application that was mentioned, but there may be
more.  Leaving any mission-critical stuff on OS's that you no longer want to
support is just bad news in the making.
