at Systems expo, there was a booth by the CS department of the
university of Erlangen showcasing their FAUMachine virtual machine.
They advertised it as VMWare-like, but it seems to be closer to qemu
(and indeed, after I asked them for a comparison to qemu, the guy
conceded they were using their code, though I don't know how much of
it).  FAUMachine has a nice GTK GUI and is licensed under the GPL.

I made them download Ben's LiveCD and try it out, but Mach stopped at
the SCSI detection and hang there.  I believe the LiveCD is supposed to
work with qemu, so it would be cool to have the Hurd working on this as
well.  Maybe it is just a matter of configuration (there didn't seem to
be much options for configuring the virtual machine's hardware though,
at least not presented by the GUI)
