Xen, LinuxVserver and UML are Open Source products. VMWare and Virtuozzo are commerical virtualization systems. Overall, Xen has the highest performance because it does not allow memory over-selling, like with UML or Virtuozzo. So Xen VPS' are usually more expensive, but performance fluctuates less. Xen has also been benchmarked as the fastest virtualization technology. Xen is in many cases limited to Linux and some BSD variants, but will not run Windows without special chip extentions. Most Xen providers only offer Linux. Virtuozzo providers often provide MS(tm) Windows(tm) and Linux. LinuxVserver is not a complete virtualization solution, as all vservers run under a common kernel, so it is faster and easier to implement.
