All the time.

I use the free VMWare server 1.0x and 2.0; under the latter I have
some 5 NetBSD VMs, I think one of these is full time running X. is a screengrab of
my laptop running Vista, VPN connected to a server running VMWare
server 2.0 and a console of a NetBSD i386 4.99.72 m/c (for some weird
reason running mwm...).

On a similar note, I can't get OpenBSD to run X inside VirtualBox...
(NetBSD doesn't run at all under NetBSD at this stage, as far as my
tests are concerned).
