Re: VMware moves to free with Server product

What I'm still trying to figure out is if VMWare Server is coming out
free, why should I keep using and buying upgrades for my copy of
VMWare Workstation?

I've seen several comparisons on their website between VMWare Server
and both GSX and ESX, but what I'd really like to see is a comparison
between it and workstation.

P.S. If I can start running headless sessions, I'll be very happy.

The article (one of them at least) seemed to indicate it would be free
beyond the beta period. Of not, all of their betas are generally free
downloads (I downloaded workstation 5.0 beta for free anyway) and they
all expire. If this is going to be free for good, I would still expect
the beta to expire since, "that's how they do it."

It is indeed free, but only until its in "Beta" version. I downloaded
a copy (I already own VMware workstation) and it will expire on
7/13/06. So it won't be free forever it seems.
