I use Debian. Mainly Lenny for development work but also some Squeeze
and Sid.

Ubuntu has a huge number of packages available via APT (using apt-get,
aptitude, synaptic, PackageKit or whatever tool is preferred/recommended
under Ubuntu these days). I'd be surprised if you needed to find and
install _many_ packages manually. Under Debian you don't, AFAIR, need
anything which isn't packaged and available via APT in the main Debian
repositories to build Xen -- I'd be surprised if Ubuntu wasn't in
broadly the same position (since it inherits large parts of Debian's
package pool).

I'm sure plenty of people on the list use Fedora and they are certainly
using things newer than fc8. For example there is an FC13 howto at
