Parallels Workstation, a commercial virtual machine offering for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (and competitor to VMware), has announced full support for OpenBSD. The new feature is touted in Workstation 2.2 for Windows and Linux users, and Parallels Desktop for Mac (build 1470) users. Although the company officially supports OpenBSD 3.8, many users have installed more up-to-date versions of OpenBSD as a guest operating system for some time now.
I have personally used OpenBSD as a guest within Parallels Workstation on my MacBook Pro for the last six months. It's a great way to create test environments for running multiple servers. I've had up to six OpenBSD guest systems operating simultaneously, versions 3.8 through 4.0 (and -current).
