Colinux, http://colinux.sourceforge.net/ allows you to run linux guest
operating systems right in windows. It's basically a kernel patch to
the Linux kernel that allows it to run as a windows process.
It works really well if you don't need to be in a virtualized hardware
environment. Like VMware it allocates disk space and RAM so it's not
as lightweight as Linux Vserver but it's a lot more resource friendly
(IMHO) than VMWare.
