I started out using NetBSD3 xen2 - it worked beautifully but didn't support
x86_64 or i386PAE, so I switched to a Linux Dom0 so I could use servers
with more than 4GiB ram.  

With NetBSD 5 being out, those problems are now solved.   It's just inertia
at this point;  I'm considering NetBSD for my next dom0.

But yeah, not supporting more than 4GiB ram was a big blocker.  Inertia from
that is probably why NetBSD Dom0s are not so popular right now.
