OSNews, Generic OSes The open source Bochs, VMware Workstation by VMware, Inc. and VirtualPC from Connectix are applications that virtualize or emulate the x86 hardware, allowing you to run multiple operating systems on top of a "host" operating system that these three applications run upon. This means that you will be able to run Linux or FreeBSD or other supported "guest" OSes under Windows, Linux (or Macintosh), inside a window or fullscreen. But which one delivers the best performance for the money? And what about the free Bochs?

Dual CPU does not matter

You made serveral references to how your test machine had dual CPU's. Hate to break it to ya, but VMware is not multithreaded..... so you could have 10cpu's and not notice a speed increase. Same goes for running VirtualPC under Win98.... last I knew, Win98 didn't support multiple processors.
