OpenXenManager alternative to XenCenter

OpenXenManager is a free clone of the XenCenter and is supposed to be fully compatible with both XenServer and the freeware XCP. The program comes bundled as a bunch of Python scripts, contained in a single archive, so the deployment is a breeze pretty much everywhere. You won't get any visual integration with your desktop theme, though.

You might want to consider this program if you're going for an all-free combo setup with XCP perhaps, or if you require GUI management from Linux, as OpenXenManager does run on non-Windows machine, unlike XenCenter, which is for Windows only. Now, the official page looks a little out of date, so you might want to take long-term support into consideration, too. But enough talking, let's OpenXenManager in action.
