Default Virtualization Software

What are the options? I'm thinking we're rather limited.

Xen 3.3 @ NetBSD (get NetBSD 5 BETA)
QEMU @ other BSDs (OpenBSD,NetBSD,FreeBSD) use with KQEMU accelrator
Bochs @ other BSDs (its emulator actually, like QEMU without KQEMU accelrator)
VMware 3 @ FreeBSD is DEPRACTED

... about OS level virtualization, FreeBSD has Jails, havent checked about NetBSD and OpenBSD here.

If you look at Mac OS X, however, it gets a little better. There's VMware, Parallels, and I think VirtualBox.

I'm hoping that there will be a port of VirtualBox for FreeBSD soon, though.
(They are making one, aren't they??)

If we count other systems here, then I would go for OpenSolaris which offers xVM (Xen 3.1 fork) and VirtualBox (along with typical OS level Solaris virtualization like Zones and Containers of course).

I've used OpenSolaris, but I don't want to reinstall anything. It's mainly for a couple of windows programs that I need. For the time being I'll stick with Wine and work on the Virtualbox port, but I need to get a FreeBSD implementation guide for that as I haven't done hardware side programming yet.
