None of the XenEnterprise high level management code, user interfaces, etc is 
open source.  There are also closed-source virtual device drivers for 
Windows.  It shares lower level code with the open source project.

The Open Source release of Xen (which this mailing list is concerned with) is 
a related but fully open codebase.

Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
