it is necessary. Standard installation of apache + mysql + debian +
postfix etch consume memory more than 128MB (maybe you can do
tweaking) on my VPS server it takes 180MB+ by only running the server
without any load yet.

i did try to run the standard required for server on 64MB memory (i do
have account on VPSVillage.com) and it give me no good. I have to
upgrade to get it working.

well, i prefer XEN because that is the best virtualization to date.
Amazon EC2 and gogrid use
XEN. and XEN cannot be oversold.
