FreeBSD It's not exciting to talk about money, but it does often take cash to keep funding the developers that improve code. Congrats to the FreeBSD foundation then, for beating their fundraising goal of $500K by almost 40%. The $690K they raised will go to funding coders, developer conferences, and some limited travel. That bodes well for continued strong support for FreeBSD in general, soon to release version 9.1 (currently at RC3).

Does FreeBSD have any hardware assisted virtualization software for it? Is there a VirtualBox or Xen for the FreeBSD family of OS's?

Virtualbox works perfectly. Xen Dom0 support will come with 10.0. Check out http://xenbits.xen.org/people/attilio/presentations/FreeBSD_develop... for more info on the state of Xen support.

I don't think a hypervisor that runs on freebsd and, right now, can only run freebsd is what the OP had in mind....
