VMWare Server Beta Released
According to an article at OsNews.com, VMWare Server Beta is available for free, as previously speculated. This is an interesting move for VMWare, and I hope they generate enough revenue to support this endeavor. I personally like VMWare, and I hope this move doesn’t affect them in a negative way. As one person noted in the OSNews thread, virtualization is becoming a commodity item, with OSS alternatives, so this does provide a way for VMWare to hook companies into the larger ESX product, especially if they require support. I will have to download it and give it a whirl.
