Well, I use Proxmox, OpenVZ and KVM because ESX and other platforms are
out of the question on licensing cost grounds.

However, the picture becomes more interesting when you factor in OpenVZ.
You'll be getting pretty close to native speeds for a lot of things,
particularly where I/O is concerned. If you're running Linux there is no
reason not to use it and I would only consider using KVM if I was running
Windows or there was some fundamental reason that demanded full
virtualisation. I haven't found one yet.
