RE: Virtualization solution

It doesn't work if you want to virtualize other OSs on FreeBSD, but if you are just trying to separate out your mail server from your web server and plan to use FreeBSD for both, I actually like using jails a lot better than virtualization. Jails accomplish pretty much the same thing and run a lot faster.

My requirement for Virtualization is that I have to run Windows. I used to use a FreeBSD system for all of my lab work, but when I have to frequently get access to windows to do other stuff - like corp email and LiveMeeting. I use Linux now with KVM to run Windows for it now and would love to get back to FreeBSD. I have tried QEMU+KQEMU but it is far too slow. I would even buy a commercial product for FreeBSD if there was one but everything is for Linux.

You might want to consider Win4BSD (

They even provide a PC-BSD PBI package!
