    i have run Win7 virtualized using VirtualBox - which is a free clone of VMware. it ran really well, considering that it was sharing 1GB of my mac's RAM.

    i think i set the machine type to Vista at the time, but the newer versions of the software should be set for win7

    Running RC1 on VMWare 2.0.4 using the Windows 2008 x64 base. No issues. Works great.

    I just finished installing Win7 through bootcamp. Actually I had Vista installed already, just installed Win7 over Vista partition, no problems at all.
