KVM, without it I'd be unable to pay my mortgage.

VirtualBox. I don't know if it's better than other solutions but I've been using it for the last several years.

Xen, KVM, and VMware, and in that order.

I've used VirtualBox up to now (plus a little bit with qemu), but I'm switching to KVM with libvirt and all that stuff (if my aging brain can manage it.

Virtualbox, have been using it with a number of different host-guest combinations without major problems.

I haven't used the others, so i feel a little foolish voting, but Virtualbox has never steered me wrong with the many operating systems i've installed to do basic things, so it gets my vote.

VMware is still way out in front for me in maturity and reliability. KVM still a bit too flaky for my liking.

I prefer VirtualBox for workstations. Vsphere for servers.
