Simple install open source, but poor support for USB and OSx

Valuable Features:

· Bear metal simple install · Runs on many different form factors- requires minimal hardware but take advantage of super-computer. From a tiny media servers to huge enterprise machines. · No CPU or memory restrictions · Many media options – local, iscsi, NFS, etc. · Run full virtualization and container based virtualization simultaneously (OpenVZ and KVM) · Intuitive web managed interface · Many enterprise advanced features · Free commercial use allowed · Open source with very active community · Large repository of open source easy to download pre-made container images that go from hyperlinks to VMs in minutes.

Room for Improvement:

· MS windows performance · Immature VDI · Poor USB handling · Poor support for OSx · commercial support options · GUI interface stability (v2.0)
