“Virtual Bugzilla server is a virtual machine with pre-installed Bugzilla. Instead of spending hours (sometimes days) installing Bugzilla, why not just download a ready-to-use server? Virtual Bugzilla server is a VMWare virtual machine. You will need a free VMWare Player to run the server.”
Free Virtual Bugzilla Server

As much as I’m not a fan of proprietary software, VMWare is an example of a closed source company that plays exceptionally well with open source. They created their own very nice gtk widgets and released them back as open source:
They also make much of their software freeware in an effort to increase the usage of virtualization. I’m sure that competition from open source projects such as Xen/OpenVZ are some of the driving reasons behind them doing things like opening up their APIs, releasing VMWare Player, and making a version ofVMWare Server freeware, but even still. Companies that play well with open source deserve our support.
Throw down the dough if you have it and buy a copy of VMWare Workstation:
I just had to say WOW, i wish this had known about this a week ago.. i ended up going with TRAC because bugzilla seemed more complicated to set up.
Let me just say TRAC was a nightware!
No offense, but this may be the worst idea I have ever heard. Who wants to try running bugzilla through vmware on a headless server?
Bugzilla is not that complicated.
What next, prepackage jboss into a vmware instance?
