OpenSolaris on a virtual machine

Solaris 10Creating a virtual machine and running OpenSolaris 10 on Windows XP is really cool even though I have seen a VMWare installation in 1999. Two things that piqued my interest are Intel® Threading Building Block and Solaris zones which we used in our last project. I am trying to play with both using VMWare player and OpenSolaris and a virtual machine created using easyvmx.
