From personal experience as well as from a security and supportability
engineering perspective, having used both consumer and data center class
products, virtualization is no panacea to be sure. But it's a nice tool
to have available. The only solutions for running multiple versions of
Mac OS X (without sacrificing desk/rack/lab space, performance or the
EULA) in a lab environment are multiple Mac mini's. (They're small,
stack nice and can be imaged fairly quickly from a Mac OS X Server with
NetBoot/NetInstall or Bombich's NetRestore.) It would be nice to buy
beefier hardware (like updated Xserve's) and run multiple copies of Mac
OS X and Mac OS X Server.

Since the targets of focus are 10.3.9, 10.4.x and 10.5.x, both client
and Server, as well as PPC and x86, I don't see how the potentiality of
this EULA change helps us completely.

Regardles, if true, it's a potential and welcome start towards the
future.
