Judging from their web site they are big fans of ZFS. If ZFS, and in particular the speed of ZFS, is your major selling point, it makes sense to hang on to Solaris, especially if you manage to port KVM in a way that doesn't violate its license. Consider that the license on ZFS precludes putting it into the Linux kernel, so running Linux is currently not a viable proposition for ZFS speed freaks.
