I use Vmware (both Workstation 4.5 and GSX server 3.0), on Win XP, 2003 server, respectively, to run shadow versions of my real server (FreeBSD 4.9R). It runs extremely well. So well even, that I am even considering running it under Vmware permanently, so I can let Win XP/2003 use the SATA raid, whilst the Vmware box is blissfully unaware of this. :) I did some tests, recently; CPU is equally fast (surprisingly). Memory operations are about 3x as slow on the Vmware box, though. I guess this is where the extra paging comes in (because of the virtualization). All in all, though, Vmware runs flawlessly. I tried GSX server 2.5 first; it was, pardon my French, crappy (quite buggy). Workstation 4.5 is excellent code; and the new GSX server 3.0 is new code too, and works equally well. Mind you, these are just my personal experiences.
