I just finally took home my VMWare Workstation Win XP VM and ran it in VMWare Fusion on my mac. It's so beautiful! Happiness! – adambox Mar 4 '10 at 18:13

Could also do it with virtualbox on win/mac/linux for free.

Correct. And VirtualBox will run that VMWare instance that you have already created. – dacracot Jan 6 '10 at 16:10
