Does anyone have experience in any of these virtual applications who might be able to derive some sort of comparison between them?
We are planning to build a comparison matrix, but at this point we are just getting started.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

True, but sometimes people mean one and say the other.
We have all but a couple of our Test serves set up for VMware Server, as well as local installations with Virtual PC and a spare system with Virtual Server on it.
To our point of view, they all pretty much give the same performance, as long as you have a beefy enough system.
I can send you the specs if you want, but our main servers are running 3 sessions each, and we sometimes have to reduce it to two when intense testing is going on.
The only real difference we have seen with their usage is just the administration interface. I haven't had first hand knowledge of VMWare as it is in the Networking group and we don't have direct access to it, but on the one system we do have under our control Virtual Server from MS in installed and it is all pretty straight forward and not brain surgory.
