VMWare actually does have virtualized hardware accelerated 3d, but with severe limitations.

.. But its promising that they are atleast TRYING. But +1 for wanting accelerated 3d for virtualizations as well.

Thanks for the link - I hadn't seen that. While the Workstation product's support of 3D in VMs is clearly still in development, I am happy to see that someone is trying to do something about this. Hopefully others are or will follow suit. I would have no problem paying $200 for a desktop virtualization solution that also provides good graphics performance. Has anyone tried the experimental VMWare solution?
