    I recommend you to use VMware.
    Just my opinion.

    I can see using VMware because of the breadth of gui-based
    tools to monitor and manage your virtual guests. Make it easy
    to allocate resources (provisioning), monitoring usage, dynamic
    moves across ESX servers, etc.

    BUT.. THAT VMware is terribly expensive. There is the free iESX
    or whatever it is called, but once you go there, then you probably
    should look at kvm at least. I think Xen is going to go away
    eventually.

    Yeah, VMWare is free, if you can find it on the site. I used to be a big VMWare fan, but lately I've found that Sun's VirtualBox works really great. There's even a site for pre-built VBox images, that I posted about here:

    Yes... but as I stated, the free product IS NOT like the non free
    product.

    "Works just fine"... translation... as long as you don't run a lot
    of guests and don't need many advanced features.
