VirtuaWin - The Virtual Desktop Manager
VirtuaWin is a virtual desktop manager for the Windows operating system (Win9x/ME/NT/Win2K/XP/Vista).
A virtual desktop manager lets you organize applications over several virtual desktops (also called 'workspaces'). Virtual desktops are very common in Unix/Linux, and once you get accustomed to using them, they become an essential part of a productive workflow. VirtuaWin is designed to be simple and elegant to use yet still be highly configurable and extensible. Have as many as 9 virtual desktops on Windows with VirtuaWin!

VirtuaWin is (open source) a freely distributed program and is licensed under the GNU General Public License.
Check the modules and icon sets page for more downloads.

Virtual CloneDrive works and behaves just like a physical CD/DVD drive, however it exists only virtually. Image files generated with CloneDVD or CloneCD can be mounted onto a virtual drive from your hard-disk or from a network drive and used in the same manner as inserting them into a normal CD/DVD drive.

Features
  • Supports all common image formats such as ISO, BIN, CCD
  • Supports up to 8 virtual drives at the same time
  • Easy to use - just double-click an image file to mount as a drive
  • Virtual CloneDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost.
Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP
If you use Windows 2000 or Windows XP you must be an administrator to install Virtual CloneDrive.

VirtualBox? Images
Ready-to-use virtual machines sporting open-source operating systems

" VirtualBox? Images project, mainly operated by Emanuele Cipolla and Calogero Sanfilippo in collaboration with the guys you may read about in the “Authors” section of the sidebar, is to provide virtual machines for innotek VirtualBox? sporting several open-source operating systems, such as GNU/Linux or Free/Net/OpenBSD for testing, security and/or entertainment purpose.

In most cases, we’ve done a minimal setup, in order not to make too much wrong assumptions. We will try to provide instructions for key tasks (for example, installing Guest Additions) for each image."

The Xen? hypervisor, the powerful open source industry standard for virtualization, offers a powerful, efficient, and secure feature set for virtualization of x86, x86_64, IA64, PowerPC, and other CPU architectures. It supports a wide range of guest operating systems including Windows?, Linux?, Solaris?, and various versions of the BSD operating systems. (more)

With Xen virtualization, a thin software layer known as the Xen hypervisor is inserted between the server's hardware and the operating system. This provides an abstraction layer that allows each physical server to run one or more "virtual servers", effectively decoupling the operating system and its applications from the underlying physical server.

The Xen hypervisor is a unique open source technology, developed collaboratively by the Xen community and engineers at over 20 of the most innovative data center solution vendors, including AMD, Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Mellanox, Network Appliance, Novell, Red Hat, SGI, Sun, Unisys, Veritas, Voltaire, and Citrix. Xen is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL2) and is available at no charge in both source and object format. Xen is, and always will be, open sourced, uniting the industry and the Xen ecosystem to speed the adoption of virtualization in the enterprise.

The Xen hypervisor is also exceptionally lean-- less than 150,000 lines of code. That translates to extremely low overhead and near-native performance for guests. Xen re-uses existing device drivers (both closed and open source) from Linux, making device management easy. Moreover Xen is robust to device driver failure and protects both guests and the hypervisor from faulty or malicious drivers.

Virtual Magnifying Glass is designed for visually-impaired and others who need to magnify a part of the screen. Unlike most similar programs it does not open a separate window for the magnification but instead puts a movable magnifying glass on screen.

VMLite XP Mode
VMLite XP Mode offers similar functions as Microsoft XP Mode, but doesn't require hardware virtualization. It allows you to run Windows XP at the same time from your desktop running on a different host operating system. Even if your computer has VT-x or AMD-V, you should try out VMLite, because it runs faster.

If you want to migrate your old Windows XP to run as virtual machine on your new Windows 7 PC, you can use our MyOldPCs software.

If you want to boot your old Windows XP directly on your new PC to have a multiple boot system in addition to your Windows 7, you can use our VBoot software, which boots an operating system from a single virtual disk file in VHD format.

VMLite XP Mode Features
  • Provides similar functions as Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode from Microsoft
  • No requirement for hardware-assisted virtualization, namely, it runs without VT-x or AMD-v
  • Provides seamless integration with host desktop to run applications from Windows XP virtual machine
  • Host files can be accessed from within the XP Mode virtual machine easily
  • Support 3rd party virtual machine images
  • Runs on any PC with Windows XP and above as host operating system
  • Highly performed, XP Mode boots in 15 seconds
VMLite XP Mode is free for personal, academic and evaluation purpose. Registration is needed in order to get the free download.

More info & downloads:
http://www.vmlite.com/

Note: You can't run VMLite inside another VM. Run VMLite on a physical computer.
