Win4Solaris - Run Windows as a Guest Under Solaris

Win4Solaris, from Virtual Bridges, allows X86 users to run Windows and Windows apps on Solaris 10, Solaris Express 11, or OpenSolaris workstations. In conjunction with SunRays, this is quite an interesting solution. Have a look at the Thin Guy's blog entry to see a flash animation of Windows XP booting in a window then running apps.

ThinGuy also reports

w00t! Win4Solaris now has bridged networking. What does this mean? It means XP/W2K Desktop sessions running under Solaris can now do things like join a domain, run point to point applications (i.e NetMeeting which I'm testing I've tested and works), etc.
Win4Solaris Pro Desktop costs $149.99.
