Almost like breathing new life into an old topic,

Vmware Player Beta (VMWARE FREE EDITION)

VMware Player is free software that enables PC users to easily run any virtual machine on a Windows or Linux PC. VMware Player runs virtual machines created by VMware Workstation, GSX Server or ESX Server and also supports Microsoft virtual machines and Symantec LiveState Recovery disk formats. 

You could easily create virtual machines and deploy them on unlimited machines. This would be great for businesses trying to teach users a new application or OS. You could also  use this to deploy honeypots.

Check it out, free of charge, here:  http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

And download free preconfigured virtual machines here http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/vm/

Note: You can't "create" virtual machines with this player, so you would need a licensed copy of vmware to do that, or download the preconfigured vm's at the link above. I thought it was fitting for this forum.
