    Well, I've been using Workstation since version 4, and yes occasionally
    I have run into kernel updates that break it. What I have done to mitigate
    that is I am very cautious about kernel upgrades and I will skip it if I
    have heard that VMware will not compile on the latest kernel. Usually you
    can check on the VMware or SuSE forum and look for early adopters
    complaining about it before you jump in and update your own kernel. It's
    really not as much of a problem as you might think. Once there is a fix for
    the new kernel then update Workstation.

    Well, I had to abandon vmware server because 1) vmware stopped maintaining
    it 2) the community stopped doing the patches to make it work.

    I have been bitten by this problem.

    What can I say, VMware server was rubbish after 1.0.
    I used Server 1 for many years before retiring the box.
    I use KVM now for servers. Remains to be seen if that was
    a good decision.
