I'd like to vote, but the poll is closed (as are any others). I presume you's open them once the New Year in the US has started? In Europe and Asia it's already Jan 1.

As the announcement mentions, voting does not open for a few days.

Should really rename KVM to "Kernel-based Virtual Machine" so it doesn't cause confusion with the more known term KVM, Keyboard, Video, Mouse switch..

My vote is for VMware, that is now free, and if your CPU doesn't support VT, stil you are able to run guest OS...

BrandZ seems a bit too Solaris specific to be included.

BrandZ indeed requires an underlying Solaris kernel but virtualizes Linux distributions at the O/S level. Very similar to OpenVZ which is in the list.

OpenVZ is built on Linux though, so is much more appropriate for this site.

I would have to agree with that. I tried a few, and found this product quite reliable, great online and e-tech support / forums.
