I haven't given VMWare a try yet, but it was on my list of other VM's  
to try now that I have an Intel based box to play with. Sun's  
VirtualBox seems to be playing very well from what I've tried so far.

Yes, etoys glucose is still missing from builds (I wasn't sure at the  
time I tried), I'd installed the Etoys-100 fructose bundle manually  
just to try.

No problem! Having a machine I can nw run (multiple) VMs on is going  
to make some of this testing a lot easier, especially with the real  
XOs for comparison.

I'm getting really kind'a worried about the level of marketing hype  
that may go out with the Sugar 0.84.0 official 'launch', without a  
good set of stable and useful Activities, promoting Sugar is like  
promoting rock concert without actual musicians.
