I've been having nothing but problems with VirtualBox since evil, I mean Oracle enveloped Sun whole. I can't click on 90% of stuff in Kubuntu in example. I then spent some time with VMware though I didn't want to download the 32 bit version of Kubuntu...problem is that VMware server 1 doesn't support 64 bit operating systems so I got a copy of VMware server 2. The problem with VMware server 2 is that the console simply doesn't work.

So I'm looking for suggestions for 64 bit capable virtualization software that doesn't suck. Suggestions please?

You could try the Workstation family of VMWare. Besides the full Workstation product which is a paid piece of software they offer the VMWare Player which includes the basic functionality of the Workstation version. If you don't need advanced features like making snapshots of your virtual machines this might be an option to try. And itīs free. I use version 3.0 to run multiple Linux boxes (both 32 bit and 64 bit) on a 32 bit Windows 7 host.
