Not I...

The kernel has changed pretty dramatically, in turn effecting the kernel extensions (kexts) that are necessary to interface with your hardware.

This means that anything that requires direct hardware access or anything that requires it's own third-party kexts to run is out of luck at the moment until they write themselves some new drivers.

I'm currently running Leopard Server in Snow Leopard via VMware!!

Fusion2 beta 1 used to just bounce in the dock but Beta 2 of Fusion 2 (build 2.0b2) works fine :-)

Leopard Server runs very well in a vm. Software Quartz Image works pretty well, shame about no Quartz Extreme acceleration (vesa 2 driver) or audio - anyone got a kext for a SoundBlaster AudioPCI 128 (ES1371) card?

The problem is that the kext's arent yet updated for the new 64 bit kernel. Check the release notes for the current build of 10.6. It shows the native boot mode based on what hardware you are running on. If it is 32 bit, it just works. If it is 64 bit, you have to reboot into 32 bit mode by holding down the 3 and the 2 keys while booting.

I don't know. I run SnowLeap on my 32-bit Core Duo machine and don't get Parallels or VirtualBox to run. Did I misunderstand your post?
