A gaggle of J. Random Developers with laptops that lack VT is not what is sustaining Xen. It must be something else.

I believe it's primarily Enterprise Inertia

at one time Xen was "the way to do virtualization" on Linux, and enterprises that setup their networks at that time aren't willing to change.

Actually, I strongly suspect that most of those organizations are still running the OS versions that they installed on the systems, but because of the 'installed base', having Xen updates in new versions is 'important', even for those companies that aren't running the new versions (after all, they may want to, and it shows that they made the right decisions way back when)
