    VMware for free??

    What, I hear you cry, are you mad?

    No, alas, it has been said but I am not!

    The only difference is that you cannot create the machines...you can only use them. You will have to get the images from another location.

    Please see the site for full details.

    I use VMware Player at work for testing. This way, we only pay for one VMware Workstation license but anyone who wants to do testing on virtual machines can do so by using Player for free. Works great. :)

    That sounds like a good way to use it cheaply. I wonder if VM have shot themselves in the foot with this release?
