Virtulization under MacOSX

There is a comparison of the different means to run Windows applications on your Intel Mac on Inside CNET Labs: Windows virtual machine performance on the Mac.
The bottom line seems to be Bootcamp probably gives the best performance, but is less convenient. VMware's Fusion gives much better performance than Parallels who were first out of the gate. Limited testing suggests Fusion is more stable and the comments indicate that Parallels support could do with some improvement.
No comparison of running Linux applications though.
