    Can anyone tell me what the basic differences are between this free one and the payed for version ?


    Is it a reason to stop me using Virtual PC ?

    The free one you cannot create new hosts. I would keep using VPC (in my opinion better than VMware full version anyway!)

    What makes (in your opinion) VPC better than VMware?

    If you cannot create new hosts what is the point of the software then ?

    Would you only be able to use prebuilt linux setups then seeing as these are free ?

    ie would i not be able to use windows xp / server setups of my own ?

    You create the hosts using the VM Ware software that you hjave already bought, you can then use the player to use it on another PC. E.g. If you have a home PC that you use all of the time for VM's, but are going away and can only take a laptop with you, you would be able to copy the VM to the laptop and use it (using the VM Player) whilst you are away.

    All of this is irreleveant though to the product that the thread was started about, as this is for data centres.

    I guess I didn't spend enough time researching this then because I was looking specifically if it supported clustering and couldn't find where it did.
