I should have put this in my previous reply, sorry. If you want the free VMware virtualization software for desktop virtualization (meaning runs under a host OS so you don't have to give up a whole computer like you would with ESX server) you want VMware Player. http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ Sure you can't create or clone your own VMs, but you can download hundreds of pre-configured, pre-built "virtual appliances" (including most of the major distros in just about any configuration you can imagine) for free from here: http://www.vmware.com/appliances/ Additionally, many of the how-tos here will also have an attached virtual appliance for download. http://howtoforge.com/ Cheers, Nick Brogna Senior Project Manager Jepson Technologies, Inc. www.jepsontech.com On May 12, 2008, at 12:33 PM, sbeam wrote: > On Monday 12 May 2008 15:11, sbeam wrote: >> Also VMWare workstation is free > > correction: "Server" is free.
