Virtual Server 2005 for Free

Microsoft made Virtual Server 2005 R2 available for freenow. Why, not because its trying to compete with VMware, but because Vista server has builtin support for Virtualization Technology, so no point charging for it now.

I for one have grown used to Virtual PC 2004. I run Windows 2003 Server on Virtual PC on my laptop running also Windows 2003 Server. Why Windows 2003 inside Windows 2003? Well, I experiment with all sorts of applications... from DB or Applications Servers. Using virtual PC keeps my host laptop free of clutters.

vmware is pretty cool though coz it doesn't matter what platform you run it on.

MS relys on MS. Big NO NO!

Plays well with others my ass.
