Virtualization Product of the Year
What is your VM of choice?

Voted KVM. Going to play with LXC more next year.

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

KVM does all of my Virtualization tasks

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.

VMware is the best but I am planning to learn KVM and Xen

Running on Linux is a prerequisite for all nominees.

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.
