    VirtualBox, link is in my signature and it's also my avatar. Most people are aware of Microsoft's VirtualPC, VMware and Parallels for virtual machines. After using Linux I stumbled upon VirtualBox and of course it also supports Apple Mac and Windows as well, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. It is completely free and by far the most user friendly VM software that I have ever used. Tons of configuration options as well.

    I use it for testing all the time and highly recommend it!

    What neat about it is that you can move people around on your 2D virtual space and the software will adjust the voice accordingly to distance. So some people are louder. Or if your playing an MMO you can put all your healers to the left that way when they talk they only come from the left side and you know who they are.
