Parent article: The first stable OpenVZ release
Linux-vserver's 188.8.131.52-vs2.0 is the most recent stable release, there are patches available for 2.6.13 and 2.6.14, but they are not "blessed" as stable (although they contain bugfixes, and are very likely *stable*).
From the mailing list on the subject of the differences:
(will use Z for OpenVZ and S for Linux-VServer)
>> Factors of interest are
>> - stability,
Z: the announcement reads "first stable OVZ version"
S: we are at version 2.0.1 (> two years stable releases)
>> - Debian support,
Z: afaik they are redhat oriented (and recently
trying to get gentoo support done)
S: L-VS is in sarge (although with older/broken packages), etch and sid
but either using recent packages or compiling the tool
yourself works pretty fine on debian
>> - hardware utilization,
Z: no idea
S: support for 90% of all kernel archs at (almost) native
speed (utilization? I'd say 100% if required)
>> - documentation and
Z: no idea
S: the wiki, the L-VS paper(s) and google
>> - community support,
Z: irc channel and forum/bug tracker
S: ML, irc channel (I guess we have excellent support)
>> - security.
guess both projects are trying to keep high security
and IMHO the security is at least as high as with the
vanilla kernel release ...
