nPar is available for AIX boxes. HP has vPar along with hardware 
partitioning. Solaris 9 wasn't there yet with Zones but the upcoming 
Solaris 10 will include partitioning and virtualization under both Sparc 
and x86 platforms. This is a first for an intel based OS, no? Bochs is 
not there yet and is not part of any OS.  Of course Microsoft is heading 
that way ever since they bought connectix. I hope nobody buys VMWare...
