I have used all virtualization software available in the Market and I have not found a single one that is not buggy, expensive and limited.

I know that virtualization is a dream and a noble feature, but no one did it the nice way except for vmware with their Server barebone metal version (ESX).
Try ESX with sun or Dell or HP servers and you will understand the difference.

your experience of virtualization softaware is probably a bit outdated. I use VirtualBox on Linux, which is free, works reliably and is a perfect complement to my Linux.

It misses the possibility of running 3D games but you cannot describe him as "bugged" or "expensive".
