I'm a recent Mac convert and I've slowly begun to fall in love with the idea that I can run great commercial apps side-by-side with some of the best open source applications in a homogenous environment.  I've even gotten used to having to resort to software-based VMs when doing work which requires that I have access to a Microsoft windows machine; however there are still plenty of tasks which I wish I could do natively.

I realize that Xen is geared more towards server virtualization rather than desktop virtualization but alas I can dream of a day where my fantasy comes true.  A day where I would be able to run Mac OS X, Windows, Solaris and Linux side-by-side-by-side-by-side with little extra overhead.

On my hardware platform of choice today (apple hardware, obviously) 3 of the 4 are possible:  Linux, Windows and Solaris; however, the fourth is not.  Has anyone successfully gotten such a setup working?
