VMware Server for free!!

Whoo! I’m actually very happy because I’ve just got my sweaty palms on a copy of the new free beta of VMware Server. This could be certainly useful for someone like me who can’t afford loads of hardware to run different OSs on (well, who can?) I’ve grabbed both the Windows and Linux servers and from my tests on both Win and Lin, the Linux server version seems to be a lot faster when installing and running operating systems. So this is basically my chance to play with a hell of a load of different Linux distros, not to mention the Windows Server 2003 trial.

Looking forward also to getting some dedicated hardware anyway though, because it means I will be able to run a semi-permanent Linux web server to get some hosting going on.

So, who’s for VMware?

And as for XEN (built-in open source virtualisation for Linux), well, I’m on the side of VMware, considering how easy it was to install.
