Yes, I'm coming to that conclusion.  At this point I have a lot of 
inertia built up with VMware since I've been using it for a while.  I 
also have a large library of VMware VMs with extensive snapshot trees in 
VMware Workstation 5.x.  It's very handy to be able to create an 
unlinked clone of any given VM/snapshot and just go in VMware Server on 
another machine. is quite interesting though...

This is partly why I'd love to see a preso/demo at PLUG N or W.  One of 
these days I'll come up with a list of features and use cases and ask 
the Ubuntu VBox OSE users on the list for comments.  Though I've 
downloaded the latest manual and will read it tonight...

software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
