In the recently released Ubuntu, you will not only find VMware Player, which was available from the previous Ubuntu release, but VMware Server is right their in the repositories as well (it does require a free license key from VMware to complete the install).

Qemu now has the kqemu module available in source format, meaning that you need to recompile it each time there is a kernel upgrade. In contrast, VMware Server modules are supplied in binary format and their packages are updated each time a new kernel comes along.

That's great for VMware users, but lets hope Qemu can get the same treatment in the next Ubuntu release.
