    Looks like some potential competition for VMware and Parallels

    I've tried it both on linux and windows, and it works fine.
    It seems to have most of the features of VMWare, and puts MS virtual PC to shame, especially has it has USB support.
    And unlike VMWare, the full version is free for personal use.

    Probably worth having for a bit of experimentation although I am pretty happy with Parallels for the amount that I actually use it.
