Note that VMWare now has a server version which is also free.

I think it might still be in beta - there are no ebuilds for it yet. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.2.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFED4q/G4/rWKZmVWkRApDtAJwLT1Zy2RlfJTOqmL7s2FZS5gnhHgCfXiWT CPC0rEwEqXAMFC+SyYFAurg= =KAwW -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
