    I tired a few of the others and had extreme difficulty getting them going. VirtualBox works very well for me and installs with a .run file. I highly recommend it.

    I have used VirtualBox, VMWare Player, and VMWare Server on both Linux and Windows. I also have used MS Virtual PC on Windows.

    I currently use VirtualBox on my Gentoo laptop with a Xubuntu guest and Solaris 10 guest ... you should have no problem with a Xandros guest.

    Not sure how Vista is with Virtual Machines.

    Has anyone actually run a Xandros guest in VirtualBox?

    How easy was it?

    Any problems or quirks to be aware of?
