Don't forget QEMU when mentioning VMWare :) QEMU is an open source computer emulator. I've run 
Win95, 98, NT, 2K, XP and other operating systems under QEMU quite sucessfully. It does have an 
optional closed-source kernel module based accelerator which works very well, and if you're okay 
using that then all the better. It's a lot more open than VMWare :)

There's a couple of apps that I use that only work on Windows, and I run them under a virtual 
machine once in a while. The VM images are actually on a usb drive and work fine from there.
