  • VMWare Server for FREE

    How do you get VMWare Server for FREE?

    Well, this isn't one of those "too good to be true offers". VMWare server is now available for free download. There is no more GSX Server, just VMWare Server.

    To download VMWare server for free, just go here

    Download the VMWare Server BETA.
    http://www.vmware.com/products/server/

    You will register and receive a key in your email box. The good thing about this is that the key doesn't expire. It isn't like some kind of limited time evaluation.

    So, if you are like me, and you had chosen to go with Microsoft's Virtual Server product because it was so much less money- now you can afford to move to the better of the two products- VMWare Server.

    There is even a Virtual PC import program- more on that, later.

    Post your Experiences here!

    Re: VMWare Server for FREE

    Well, I'm a diehard VCP and bleed VMware blue

    I guess that could explain why I have nearly 9,000 posts and am moderator on the VMware forums *LOL*

    I have no loyalty to Microsoft's virtualization technology mostly due to their typical "must devour all" approach to VMware and the virtualization market. Sorry Microsoft, I can't back you this time. And you will never have a product that rivals ESX due to the guest OS's you'd have to support as well as the fact that you're a good 5+ years behind on the technology. Have fun piddling around in the low and mid-tier markets

    On a positive note, the competition in the market is good for us end users. It should keep VMware sharp and on its toes.
