As I find VMware to be significantly more professional, stable, and accessible than Parallels, I am excited about this too. I will be interested to see how they accomplish this. To see if they're using the physical Macintosh's EFI to boot, or if they actually emulated EFI.

I'd also be interested to see exactly would happen if someone took the vmdk and just tried loading it into VMware Server on Windows or Linux. It should obviously die out, but it will be interesting. Finally, I'll be intrigued to see if, even though it's technically against the EULA of Tiger Server, you can install 10.4 Server on a VM.

Now I would be happy if they would have Unity running in the VMware Tools drivers for Linux. Though at least here there's a workaround with X11 Forwarding.

EDIT: Oh, and I found "Spaces work in the Virtual Machine?" to be quite amusing, after which the quality of the video drops off significantly. But it's nice to see OS X in a VM.
