    virtual machine player

    Well ok it's not native at all but this virtual machine could allow to run windows software in a little bit more secure way than running on a pure windows environment.

    http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

    in my point of view i don't like that but for some people which continues to love windows it could be usefull...ok it's not new, that's right but the new thing is that this "player" is free and at the moment is more reliable than wine or any other concurrents as cedega and many others even if they don't share the same philosophy/technology/way of doing things.

    The player isn't exactly new either.

    It doesn't come with its own program to create images, but you you can make images using qemu-img. Decent guide: http://johnbokma.com/mexit/2005/10/2...indows-xp.html
