This is called PR. If you read this, you'll have a better idea of what's
going on here:
Xen was funded by commercial research money (from Microsoft and Intel
IIRC) with the intent of turning it into a commercial venture, which is
what Xensource is. All this "buzz" is to a large degree artificially
generated to support the venture.
