[PLUG] VMWare Control

Does anyone know of a good VMWare management program?

I've used both VMware and VirtualBox for running servers.   VMware seems more 
robust for server applications, but the web-based control interface seems 
horribly clunky and awkward to use (it's also slow as can be!).

I'm in the process of switching to VirtualBox just because it's so much more 
pleasant to use, but I was wondering if there might be some freeware control 
programs out there.

I've googled for them, but the VMware world is ripe with brandnames and 
marketing speak, instead of the simple GPL'd world I prefer.  So I'm not 
really sure what the heck these things are.  For example, is "vCenter" the 
server, the managment program, or what?

Can anyone recommend a good management and control program for VMware?
