Free Virtual Machine - run Windows on Mac

Mike Kronenbert wrote 'Q'; a free, open source virtual machine that can run windows and linux on Intel based Macs.
A completely rewritten cocoa port of QEMU, built directly on OS X, making use of Apples Core-technologies like Coreimage, Coreaudio and OpenGL for in- and output, saving the overhead of crossplattform APIs like SDL, FMOD or GTK.

This virtual machine is considered to be 'Alpha', it is considerably slower than other virtual machines such as Parallels but it seems fairly stable and you can't beat the price.

You can find this free emulator for Mac OS X here; Q
