  • I'm fond of VirtualBox from Sun (formerly Innotek). It works well for running debian and XP if you need it. It's free.
    • I second the vote for VirtualBox. I use it for a bunch of WinXP images that let me test my web apps with Internet Explod^Hrer, and it’s been a nice no-nonsense experience so far.

  • It sounds like qemu is ideal for your needs.

    Because it's an emulator, it can run all sorts of different operating systems, sometimes of multiple types of emulated architectures.

    It's by no means fast, you wouldn't want to do production environments with it, but it's still plenty fast enough that doing compatibility testing is quite reasonable.
