rumour has it VirtualBox might have FreeBSD as host OS coming... and i wount admit i said this :) but i saw a post about a solaris build being available, and it stated FreeBSD maybe coming soon.
also you can run XEN or KVM on HVM capable systems and get away from that VMWARE Pain also VirtualBox on linux as host runs FreeBSD guests, I actually have 6 FreeBSD guests running on XEN 3.21 under a Ubuntu Server OS, waiting for an HVM capable box to be delivered so i can test KVM and XEN HVM capabilities.
