I would like to know what would be -at this moment- the best virtualization solution to use on a brand new windows 2008 live server.

The first Guest OS that we will deploy is a windows 2008 std to run terminal services and a second SBS2003 server.

Since we have a windows 2008 x64 i was thinking to install hyper-v as a role. Somehow i don't trust it so much because it's still a release candidate version.

We've used VMware products all the time but i have no idea if vmware is well supported on a windows 2008 host OS.
