    Hi guys/gals,

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but:

    Microsoft, from today is offering MS Virtual Server Enterprise R2 for free here.

    Looks like MS has accepted the challenge by VMware, and gone a step further.

    "Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 was first launched in September 2004; the cost was $999 for Enterprise Edition and $499 for Standard Edition. In December 2005 Microsoft began offering Virtual Server 2005 for $199 Enterprise Edition and $99 Standard Edition. As of today, Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition is free to download here. Standard Edition is no longer being offered. Additionally, the availability of virtual machine add-ins for Linux and a technical product support model for Linux guest operating systems running on Virtual Server 2005 R2" -Microsoft

    And the war between virtual machines continue...
