VirtualBox 100%! I've had issues setting up VMWare server on my machines, but VirtualBox runs light and fast. Plus, a fair amount of the code is under the GPL.

Heh, funny but I never managed to get a second (reliable) guest on my Xen Hypervisor! I followed many a How-To, but to no avail.

That, and Xen doesn't work for Microsoft products (yet).

Xen for testing iso images using the VT-chip. OpenVZ for running multiple OS.

No, it's just not quite mature enough yet. It's been six months since I last tinkered with it, and it wasn't "easy" enough to "just work". Maybe things have changed since then...

VMWare

VMWare works absolutely fine - worked with Qemu too - that too is good.

As far as xen is concerned I am trying to install it for the third day and still the xen kernel is not showing up.

My vote is for VMWare

I had bad luck with Qemu...

VMWare is ok...Vitualbox is Awesome!

My vote is for Xen...just because I've been playing with it for a while now...
