[PLUG] VMware in Ubuntu repos?

VMware Server used to be in 
  But there are no "*-commercial" repos since Feisty, and I can't find 
it in any repo I've found.

I know how to install it manually, and have done so many times, but it 
would sure be nice if it was "officially" in a repo.  Anyone have any 
ideas what happened?

BTW, I also see that virtualbox-ose *is* in the repos, and several 
people on this list and elsewhere have recommended I check it out, which 
I'll get around to.  It seems to have better USB support than VMware 
too...  Anyone want to do a demo of it?  And/or a comparison between 
VMware Server, Workstation and VB-OSE?

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
