Microsoft Virtual PC Alternative

I had Virtual PC 2007 installed on my last computer. Was happy enough with it. Now, I wanted to install it on my Windows 7 HP machine, and found out that some things have changed since I last used the product. Seems that I can't run it on Home Premium (Thanks Micro$oft!).

I'm now looking for alternatives. Any recommondations? My goal right now is to have an Ubuntu installation running on my workstation without having to boot between Ubuntu and Windows 7.
