From the same creators of Win4Lin a new product hits the first release: Win4BSD.
Win4BSD, just like Win4Lin, is a QEMU/KQEMU commercial repackage which currently allows customers to run Microsoft Windows on FreeBSD, PC-BSD and Desktop BSD.
Support for OpenBSD and NetBSD is expected in future releases.
This first release offers among others following features:
- One-Click-to-Windows provides extremely easy installation of Windows
- Runs Windows 2000/XP Applications and Desktop on BSD at near-native speed
- Ability to display either full desktop mode or “floating” application mode
- Full support for audio playback and recording

With this new release the Win4Lin company seems to re-organize itself under the new image of Virtual Bridges.
The virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
