Microsoft The long-awaited update to Microsoft's virtualization software was released Monday. Virtual PC 2007 brings support for Windows Vista - as both a guest and host operating system - and takes advantage of new hardware virtualization technology from both Intel and AMD. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Virtual PC 2007 are available free of charge; Microsoft made Virtual PC 2004 SP1 freeware last July and promised to release 2007 for no cost. The move to freeware ups the ante with rival virtualization companies such as VMware and new market entrant Parallels.

Yes VMware Workstation 6 Beta is free, but it also runs in Debug Mode, which pretty well saps it dry performance wise.
