its a freebie from Oracle
https://www.virtualbox.org/

and I just set it up now, got my W2K3 box set as a VM now, adding DC setup to it too
going to set a Linux box or two up as well
need to as I only have a single machine now, so might as well make th e8GB of RAM earn its keep :)

will be running through my W2K3 test certs on it, and want to get some Linux experience going forward

I love virtual box. Tried MS hyper-v as well...its meh. I am really interested in Xens vga passthrough feature. Lets you dedicate a graphics card to the vm for 3d acceleration. Tried to setup an Arch Linux box to fully test it. Never got around to installing Xen on it though.....very daunting task
